Rio Ferdinand initially acted as if he would ignore Jamie Carragher as they crossed paths on Wednesday, but eventually put their feud to bed.
- Recent war of words between ex-players
- Former England team-mates
- But any issues now appear to be resolved
WHAT HAPPENED? CBS pundit Carragher recently called BT’s Ferdinand a “clown” during a dispute about a penalty decision in the Champions League semi-final between Inter and AC Milan. Ferdinand seemed to take offence to that comment, saying: “I don’t understand why he came in with hostility, it’s a hostile energy and I don’t understand it.”
After initially brushing by Carragher on punditry duty at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, though, they shared a respectful handshake.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Carragher and Ferdinand were international team-mates and club rivals during their careers, and they have each become popular pundits in retirement.
WHAT NEXT? We’ll see if Ferdinand invites the ex-Liverpool centre-back onto his FIVE show, or if the pair remain at a respectful distance moving forward.
Who should be Man Utd’s No.9 next season?
