Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has hit back at Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher after the former Red took a dig at the Red Devils and their caretaker coach, Michael Carrick following their win over Villarreal in the Champions League last week.

Carrick took the reigns of the United squad for their trip to Villarreal following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and following their win in the Champions League, Carragher tweeted: “Man Utd might not thank me, but get the contract out put it on the table & let him sign it, let him right whatever numbers he wants, let him sign the contract. Carrick’s at the wheel man!”

Ferdinand who during his career was considered as one of the greatest defenders of his generation, hit back at the former Liverpool man the latest edition of Vibe With Five - in which he slammed Carragher for talking about winning league titles when he has no personal experience of doing so.

“Carra shouldn’t really be talking about winning league titles. he’s never done it. He don’t know what it means, he didn’t know how to do it, he’s never navigated a team through it to that point to win a league.

“So I find it very difficult when he speaks with such conviction about winning leagues. He should stick to cup competitions. The moment he talks about leagues, I just mute it.”

Ferdinand for his part had vast experience of winning silverware during his career, winning six Premier League titles and one Champions League honour during his time at Old Trafford.
