The QPR star said Moyes approach to managing the Red Devils created a ‘negative vibe’ at the club that led to them finishing 7th in last year’s Premier League table.

Ferdinand also labeled some of Man United’s displays under David Moyes were an ’embarrassing’.

Despite his criticism of the former Everton manager, Ferdinand insists he has nothing against his old boss.

”Yes, of course. I’ve got nothing against him as a person,” said the former England international.

“As I said, I’m saying that he’s a gentleman, a great man. As I said, I’ve never had any bad words to say about him at all in that respect as a person.”

Moyes was replaced by Louis van Gaal during the summer and the Dutchman spent £150 million re-shaping United’s squad.

Some blame Sir Alex Ferguson for the condition that United’s squad was left in when he retired but Ferdinand thinks it’s unfair to blame the 72-year-old for the problems the club faced last season.

He said: “I don’t understand how people can say (that). You’ve got some great players throughout the squad. You win the league by 11 points. You’ve got to be a top team to do that.

“So he goes and then it all falls apart? So that’s his fault? How can people say that?

“I don’t think the buck stops with Sir Alex Ferguson at all. I think you leave and you win a trophy. There’s not many better ways to go out than that.”
