When Cristiano Ronaldo stepped to the touchline to start shouting instructions during Manchester United’s upset defeat against Young Boys, Rio Ferdinand stated he would have instructed him to’sit down.’
Ronaldo gave United the lead in Bern with his third goal of his second stay at the club, but he and his teammates were left dissatisfied after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off and the hosts equalized.
After being substituted in the second half, the typically fiery forward was not afraid to get near to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and provide advice to United’s players, although Ferdinand has stated that he would not have accepted the antics.
‘If I’m the manager, I’ve got to be honest, I’m telling him to sit down,’ Ferdinand told BT Sport during their post-match coverage.
‘I get it. You know, with Cristiano people go, “Oh it’s bravado, it’s for the fans”. He’s just a passionate guy. He wants to win, he’s desperate to win, and he can’t hold it in.
