Gary Neville makes Rio Ferdinand WhatsApp joke on TV after Jamie Carragher ‘bullied’ claim | Football | Sport


Gary Neville has joked he wants to hitch an apparent WhatsApp group including Rio Ferdinand and other former Manchester United players. The previous England right-back made the quip live to tell the tale Sky Sports on Monday night after his colleague Jamie Carragher had been embroiled in a web based spat with Ferdinand.

Carragher and Ferdinand got here to blows on Twitter in a debate regarding United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Carragher tweeted earlier within the day on Monday that Erik ten Hag was right not to select the Portugal forward against Manchester City on Sunday.

The Liverpool legend posted: “The concept that ETH got it unsuitable yesterday by not playing Ronaldo is laughable! Ronaldo played at Brentford when it was 4-0 at ht!!

“It’s not a dig at CR, but [Marcus] Rashford’s pace on the counter attack as we saw v Arsenal/Liverpool was the perfect option.”

His ex-Three Lions team-mate Ferdinand responded by joking in regards to the viral video clip where Ronaldo snubbed Carragher’s handshake on the match between United and Liverpool earlier this season. Ferdinand believes Ronaldo must have played an element against City.

Ferdinand wrote: “What WhatsApp group?! Leave off lad…I need this same energy with Roy Keane when ya next within the studio ffs, stop getting bullied.”

That was where the Twitter spat ended. Nevertheless, it continued on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

Closing the show, Carragher revealed Keane can be on the programme next week. He said: “Have we got Roy Keane on? One other Ronaldo debate.”

Neville then referred to Ferdinand’s earlier comment before addressing his former team-mate. He said: “You will get bullied again! Watching Rio?”


Carragher responded: “He desires to get in that WhatsApp group Rio.”

To which Neville joked: “Yeah can I be in that WhatsApp group mate please?”

Ferdinand simply replied with a variety of crying with laughter emojis on Twitter, tagging each Neville and Carragher within the tweet.
