Rio Ferdinand says he is afraid to leave his house because of Manchester United's embarrassing season.

The champions are languishing in seventh - 18 points behind leaders Chelsea and 12 points off a Champions League spot - and have just lost back-to-back home games 3-0 against bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

Ferdinand told the Guardian: “It’s embarrassing – it becomes a personal insult. I don’t want to go out when the game is finished and you even stop watching TV.

“I don’t want to take my kids to school. I don’t want to walk on the school path and think I’m hearing things or seeing people look at me because we lost a game. I don’t want to fill my car up with petrol or go to the shops."

The centre-back added: "It gets personal with everyone looking at you and talking about the results and the form and stuff. You don’t want to live like that.

"You want to live freely and comfortably. You don’t want to see other people lifting titles. That’s what we’re used to. That’s what we want. That’s what we train for and work for.”
