Club legend Rio Ferdinand admits Manchester United captain Harry Maguire needs to be removed from the starting line up for a few weeks.
The center back has experienced a very tough season at club level, putting in poor displays in all competitions.
Maguire got a red card against Watford in a 4-1 loss on Saturday in the Premier League, which was the last game for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
"Harry wouldn't like to hear this but I just think sometimes you need to be taken out of the firing line," Ferdinand told the FIVE YouTube channel.
"He's had a long summer, a successful summer with England to a certain degree. He's played a lot of football, comes back to United and physically and mentally it looks like there's a hangover there.
"He won't take himself out of it, I wouldn't either, I'd try and play myself through it, but at the moment his performances haven't been up to the level required, for him, for Man United. The bar he set himself wouldn't be there.
"I saw Gary Neville spoke about it the other day that he was having a nightmare after three or four summers on the bounce playing football for England and Man United and needed time off.
"I think Harry Maguire is probably at that point right now."
