Jamie Carragher vindicated as Rio Ferdinand defends Cristiano Ronaldo over Manchester United fall-out

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has still found a way to defend his old mate Cristiano Ronaldo in a debate with Jamie Carragher.

Ferdinand was keen to take Carragher up on an earlier tweet, with the former Liverpool defender suggesting that it would be the likes of former Man Utd players such as Ferdinand, Roy Keane and Patrice Evra who would take Ronaldo’s side in this saga.

The Portugal international has dominated headlines today after slamming his club and his manager Erik ten Hag in an interview with Piers Morgan, and Ferdinand hasn’t exactly done much to prove Carragher wrong.

Watch below as the former England defender insists that Ten Hag and other key figures at United could have communicated better with Ronaldo to avoid this blow-up from happening in the first place, though he did not defend the actions of Ronaldo in his interview with TalkTV

Ferdinand played alongside Ronaldo for many years and has previously admitted to still texting him from time to time, so it perhaps makes sense that he doesn’t want to place all the blame at his old colleague’s door.

Fair play to Carragher, though, for going on to Ferdinand’s show to debate this after his tweet earlier in the day.
