Rio Ferdinand Trolls Jamie Carragher and Liverpool Over League Titles

Rio Ferdinand Trolls Jamie Carragher and Liverpool Over League Titles

Rio Ferdinand were two of their generation’s greatest defenders but whilst they shared an incredible talent for keeping out opposition strikers, it turns out they don’t always see eye-to-eye on football.

The former Manchester United and Liverpool stars have been trading blows on Twitter today over Ferdinand’s latest column for the Daily Mail newspaper, in which he claims to be fearful that United could go through a barren spell like the one experienced by Liverpool over the last two decades.

Carragher wasn’t best pleased with that particular train of thought, and quickly responded to his former England colleague, citing the Reds’ dominance in Europe:

But Ferdinand hit back, trolling Carragher over Liverpool’s inability to close out a league title, with 1990 being the last time the English top-flight was won by the Merseyside club, despite going close to ending the drought on several occasions:

They’re probably both right, to a degree, when you think about it.

Liverpool’s longing for a league title has gone on far too long now, but they remain a big club.

United, meanwhile, seem to be staring down the barrel of their own trophy-less run, if they don’t do something dramatic.

Which side of the fence do you come down on?
