Newcastle United fans react as Rio Ferdinand demands answers from Manchester United owners after European Super League collapse
March 22, Rio Ferdinand has told Newcastle fans to buy the club themselves if they want Mike Ashley out.
A month later, the former defender is asking Manchester United owners for answers after the European Super League debacle.
The Red Devils dropped out of the proposed separatist league Tuesday night as the ESL project collapsed.
Manchester United were one of six English clubs involved, seeking to join a competition where there was effectively no competition.
History has shaken the football world and the fallout is surely not over.
Ed Woodward has resigned as president of Manchester United, to the delight of fans.
But Ferdinand wants answers from the Glazers.
“We want to know the answers”, Ferdinand said in a video posted on his official Twitter..
“Everything is vague. We want to know why you went ahead with this. How you thought the fans would agree with that. What were your reasons for doing this.
“You can’t just come in and run the institutions of this football club like Man United, Liverpool … all these big football clubs, the six clubs that we have and you think you can be a faceless person. “
So it’s normal for Ashley to do what he wants with Newcastle, but not for the Glazers to do what they want with Manchester United? Suppose it depends on who is selling your caps …
The hypocrisy is surprising. And the sad part is, you knew it was going to happen.
Ferdinand’s analysis of the situation in Newcastle has been embarrassing.
Telling Toon fans to buy a £ 300million club is just ludicrous. The irony is that the Newcastle United Supporters Trust has since launched the 1892 pledge.
But as Newcastle fans persist with an owner who has neglected their club, Ferdinand is asking his former employers for answers.
Unsurprisingly, Toon fans on Twitter have no sympathy whatsoever. Some even told Ferdinand how he can handle the situation – collect his money and buy the club.
