Manchester United defender struggling to cope with ‘embarrassing’ season

Manchester United centre back Rio Ferdinand has admitted that he feels publicly humiliated by the team’s poor season, as reported by the Daily Mail.

United have massively struggled under David Moyes this season and are even facing a battle to qualify for the Europa League next season.

Calls this week have been for Moyes to be sacked but United are set to stick with their man for the long term, with funds available to strengthen in the summer.

Ferdinand has admitted that he is scared of taking his children to school due to the embarrassment of United’s form and it is personally affecting the whole squad.

‘It’s embarrassing – it becomes a personal insult,” Ferdinand said.

‘I don’t want to go out when the game is finished and you even stop watching TV. I don’t want to take my kids to school.

‘I don’t want to walk on the school path and think I’m hearing things or seeing people look at me because we lost a game.

‘I don’t want to fill my car up with petrol or go to the shops. It gets personal with everyone looking at you and talking about the results and the form and stuff.

‘You don’t want to live like that. You want to live freely and comfortably.’
