Ferdinand urges United to do everything to land Guardiola

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand says his old club should move for Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola.

Ferdinand believes United should jump at the opportunity to land the former Barcelona coach.

“Where’s he going to go from Bayern?” said Ferdinand.

“He’s not going to go to Italy. He’s been in two of the three best leagues in the world and the next progression naturally is going to be the Premier League.”

“You have one chance to get him.”

“He’s not going to go to Man City and then to Man United.”

“He’s not going to go to Chelsea and then Man United, it won’t happen. So you’ve got one chance to get the best manager on the planet.”

“Is he better than what you’ve got? That’s what Man United and City should be asking. If the answer is yes then you go for it surely.”

“It’s like the best players in the world. It doesn’t matter what club you’re at, if someone like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi becomes available, everyone is interested.”

“I don’t think it’s any different with a great manager.”
