Rio Ferdinand Reveals That Seeing Sergio Aguero’s Premier League Winning Goal Still Hurts

Rio Ferdinand Reveals That Seeing Sergio Aguero’s Premier League Winning Goal Still Hurts

It’s been three years since Manchester City snatched the Premier League title from Manchester United on the last day of the season.

But it appears that wound has never healed, at least according to former United defender Rio Ferdinand.

City striker Sergio Aguero wrote his name in the history books that afternoon in 2012 by scoring the goal which captured the club’s first league title in 44 years.

United had finished their final game and were awaiting news from the Etihad to confirm they were champions, however the City players clearly hadn’t read the script.

Instead Roberto Mancini’s side performed a miraculous turnaround, leaving the United players heartbroken when they were expecting to throw a title-winning party.

And Ferdinand took to Twitter this morning to reveal that it still hurts him to watch the Argentinian score:

Capture

 

 

Ferdinand left United in 2014 before joining Queens Park Rangers for a single campaign.

The former England international has now hung up his boots and will be part of BT Sport’s new-look punditry panel for next season.
