Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand was booed by Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge today as his side beat the Premier League leaders in an exciting and controversial match. Almost every-time Ferdinand received the ball he was subject to widespread booing.
Many people criticised this because they felt it was poor that the Chelsea fans were booing him, presumably because his brother was racially abused by their captain. However, it would be fair for the Chelsea supporters to claim it was related to the incident with Ashley Cole, something for which Ferdinand himself faced an FA charge relating to racist comments.
Ferdinand probably won't be too bothered either way given that his team managed to win the game and he put in a good performance himself. As if to ram home that the boos didn't get to him, he's just tweeted the following on his official account:
He'll no doubt be a little less popular with Chelsea fans now, given that dose of sarcasm, but he probably couldn't care less.
