Rio Ferdinand tells Mainoo to learn from England duo


Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has told youngster, Kobbie Mainoo to learn from England duo, Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden.

According to Ferdinand, both Saka and Foden are showing their displays consistently.

Mainoo, 18, has often featured in Man United manager, Erik ten Hag’s first team since coming into the starting XI last November.

He has been a remarkably calm presence in central midfield for Ten Hag’s side as they push for a UEFA Champions League spot.

“Just be consistent. If you are just consistent at the level he is at the moment, that is a very good level right now,” Ferdinand told FIVE on what Mainoo must do now.

“That is why Saka, you’ve got to love him. That is why Foden. These guys ain’t just flash in the pan that come in and have a good moment.

“These guys are showing it consistently, this is our level and we’re going like that [up].

‘”Kobbie Mainoo has to look at those types of guys and go, I don’t want to be one that just comes in.”
