Anderson criticises Rio stance

Published Add your comment

Former Manchester United defender Viv Anderson has claimed Rio Ferdinand was wrong to go against Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson and refuse to wear a Kick it Out T-shirt ahead of the Barclays Premier League encounter with Stoke.

Ferdinand was United's only outfield player not to wear one of the shirts during the warm-up, with skipper Patrice Evra putting one on despite his recent spat with Luis Suarez. A visibly angry Ferguson said the incident was "embarrassing" afterwards given he said all his players would be wearing the shirts and stated that the matter would be dealt with - "don't worry about that".

"I don't agree with Rio," Anderson told MUTV. "You can see the manager was fuming and clearly he didn't know anything about it. He expects his senior boys to set an example. He is the manager. If he says we are all doing it together, it should be the end of the story."
