Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to Manchester United’s exit from the Champions League, and they’re taking particular pleasure from some recent comments made by Rio Ferdinand.
Manchester United were comfortably beaten by Barcelona on Tuesday night, meaning the Red Devils will now definitely finish the season without silverware.
The Catalan giants took the lead early at the Camp Nou and never looked like surrendering it.
Lionel Messi’s brace – one of which was a fabulous goal while the other was a goalkeeping catastrophe from David De Gea – effectively ended the match in the first half before Philippe Coutinho scored a vintage effort from outside the box to make it 3-0.

And Ferdinand, who was working as a pundit on BT Sport during the match, will certainly be regretting some comments he made on the programme back when United looked resurgent under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Speaking on BT Sport before Solskjaer was offered the permanent position, Ferdinand said: “Get the contract out, put it on the table, let him sign it let him put whatever numbers he wants to put on there.
“Let him sign the contract and go. Ole’s at the wheel, he’s doing it, he’s doing his thing, Man United are back!”
Needless to say, arch-rivals Liverpool are enjoying the meltdown as their old foes have now lost five of their last seven games in all competitions.

That contract is so far my favourite thing to happen this season. I was praying they would give him a contract guaranteeing a minimum of another season of mediocrity. Certain to throw all their money at Erik ten Hag at the end of next season if Chelsea don’t get their first
