Rio Ferdinand and Usain Bolt were both enraged by Manchester United’s humiliating loss to Liverpool.
During Manchester United’s dreadful performance against Liverpool in the Premier League, legend Rio Ferdinand and super fan Usain Bolt were among thousands of enraged fans.
Manchester United faced Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and fell behind two goals after only 15 minutes due to some ludicrous defending.
Following their comeback win over Atalanta in the Champions League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side headed into the game with some confidence, but it quickly faded.
Following a squandered chance for Bruno Fernandes, Jurgen Klopp’s side seized an early lead when Mohamed Salah found Naby Keita in front of goal after only five minutes.
Salah found Trent Alexander-Arnold, who in turn found a delighted Diogo Jota, who slid into an empty net to double the score – the Egypt international completing his hat-trick before the hour mark.
The manner of the goals left United fans, including some well-known figures, in amazement, and they expressed their displeasure on social media.
Usain Bolt only tweeted one word to his 4.8 million followers: ‘funny.’
Rio Ferdinand responded with a single angry red curse face emoji on Twitter.
“We’ll always be a threat because of the individuals we have,” he continued, “but we’re so easy to play through it’s crazy!”
The first half was embarrassing… men vs. boys!”
Rival supporters were quick to bring up Ferdinand’s speech before Solskjaer was given the permanent post, despite the fact that the team had yet to win a trophy during his tenure.
After the second goal, former United striker Dion Dublin told BBC Sport: “Liverpool is deserving of it.
“They’ve been working on it all day.
“On my television in front of me, I can see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer yelling at his players. When the midfield players get the ball, Liverpool has been sharper, and there have been runs forward.
“Trent Alexander-Arnold is free to choose.”
Prior to adding: “Manchester United does not appear to be defending in a calm manner.
“Everything is rushed and on the verge of collapsing.
“We’ve seen this defense play together before, but you need players who can settle things down when you’re playing in a game like this, with an atmosphere like this.”
