Video: Rio Ferdinand Slams Paul Pogba’s Dance Celebration In Man United Dressing Room

Manchester United hero Rio Ferdinand has slammed Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard for their latest social media posts.

The world’s most expensive player Pogba uploadeda video yesterday from United’s Carrington training ground to show his new joint goal celebration with team-mate Lingard.

Furious backlash

The video prompted a backlash of criticism from fans, and it appears to also have infuriated ex-England stopper Ferdinand.

Speaking a a pundit on BT Sports last night, the former United defender tore into Pogba and Lingard over the timing of the post – claiming it would never happen during his time at the club.

You’re Sixth

Ferdinand insisted that the Old Trafford stars – who currently sit sixth in the Premier League table – should be doing their best to keep a low profile until they start winning trophies.

He said: “Listen, I’m all for having a bit of fun on social media. But when you’re fifth (sixth) in the league, you’re not in the Champions League positions and you’re fighting…

“Until you’re winning, that’s when you go out and do stuff like that.

“I’ve dug out Arsenal players for doing stuff like this before and it would be wrong of me to not talk about the United players.”

You can check out Ferdinand’s full rant in the clip below:

Pogba will get the chance to showcase his new celebration – and perhaps win Ferdinand over – if he nets against Hull at Old Trafford tonight.
