Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Manchester United have a top squad that can contend for trophies, but the United legend also admitted that his side are behind Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City due to a lack of experience.

While Chelsea, Liverpool and City are used to winning, the same cannot be said about Manchester United as they are yet to taste trophy success under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“I think Man United’s not problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things,” Ferdinand told BT Sport in mid-week.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies.”
