Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand took to ‘Bubbly’ to celebrate his side’s 2-1 weekend victory against arch-rivals Liverpool.
Goals from Robin Van Persie and Nemanja Vidic proved to be the difference for the Red Devils, with Daniel Sturridge’s late consolation failing to impact the final result at Old Trafford.
It was a win that brought great pleasure to the 34-year-old centre back, who never gets tired of winning big games. Ferdinand also paid tribute to the supporters for the atmosphere they generated against the Reds, and looked ahead to the FA Cup third round replay against former club West Ham United.
“Just got in after the game – I’m absolutely knackered. What a game, we won 2-1 obviously as you know. To beat Liverpool – woof – what a feeling,” he told social media site ‘Bubbly’.
“We should have had the game finished in the first-half, but as you know we never do it the easy way and they came back into it and it was a tough game in the end. Just happy to get the three points – role on Wednesday against West Ham.
“Great support by the way, the loudest I’ve heard it for ages at Old Trafford. Keep continuing to do that and supporting the lads.”
Ferdinand was back on the site a few hours later on Monday, revealing he often struggles to sleep in the aftermath of a big game.
He also took the opportunity to call out Twitter followers who had taunted him before the match against Liverpool, and whilst trying to avoid a bout of gloating, admitted it was a fantastic feeling to get another big win.
“Sitting here. Got insomnia – I can never sleep after a game. I think the adrenaline is still flying around in the body after a big game like that,” added the Manchester United defender.
“It’s funny, because you look on Twitter and you see all those people who tell you you’re going to get beaten and battered – where are they now? They don’t Tweet – they go to sleep and into hibernation – there gone. Where are you?
“It’s always nice when you win. Don’t want to gloat too much but it’s a beautiful feeling, especially against Liverpool, big rivals.”
