Rio Ferdinand says that he was disappointed to see Arsenal and not Manchester United sign Thomas Partey. The Gunners sealing the signing of Partey during this summer transfer window from Atletico Madrid.
Partey has already made 3 Premier League and 2 Europa League appearances for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ferdinand said: “You have to say well played to Arsenal.
“Partey – what?! I said a while ago back in April or before that when I was talking about who United should buy – that was my guy!
“You have to give massive credit to [Mikel] Arteta and how they set-up. They absolutely pressured Manchester United, they pinned them back.
“They said: ‘We don’t even need to have the ball, we’re going to control this game without the ball’.
“They pinned them back and said: ‘you make the mistakes and we’ll feed off that.’
“United looked frustrated because they couldn’t get out. They didn’t get loads of big chances but Arsenal looked like the team that were on the front foot and were the aggressors in this game at Old Trafford.”
