Rio Ferdinand sends message to Manchester United stars after 7-0 defeat to Liverpool

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has sent a message to Manchester United stars following Sunday’s 7-0 defeat at Liverpool.

“We’ve been pulverised,” Ferdinand said on his YouTube channel. “That was a massacre. An absolute massacre at Anfield. That’s all you can call it. The players will be feeling embarrassed.”

He added: “[Erik] ten Hag, man… If I was him, the team would know I would be upset but one of the main points would be do not let this derail your season now.

“You come back in tomorrow, you get back to work, you look at what went wrong and then you go to Southampton at Old Trafford.

“You make sure that you give the fans something to shout about after the embarrassment here at Anfield.

“All of you, sit there and let that feeling sink in about how embarrassing and how bad it feels.”
