UCL: You’ll get slapped again by Man City – Rio Ferdinand warns Man United after 2-2 draw with Atalanta UCL: You’ll get slapped again by Man City – Rio Ferdinand warns Man United after 2-2 draw with Atalanta

Rio Ferdinand has warned that Manchester United will get ‘slapped’ by Manchester City in this weekend’s derby at Old Trafford if they put up the sloppy performance they displayed against Atalanta on Tuesday night.

By being ‘slapped’ again the former England defender was referring to United’s disappointing 5-0 defeat to Liverpool two weekends ago.

Ferdinand noted that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were in ‘disarray’ for much of Tuesday’s Champions League tie against Atalanta.

It was Cristiano Ronaldo that once again rescued United with a superb late goal to earn them a draw against Atalanta.

Their next game is a Premier League clash with arch-rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford and Ferdinand has warned his former club against replicating their Atalanta display against Pep Guardiola’s side.

“[Manchester United] can’t have that second-half performance against Man City. If they do they get slapped again,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“It will be three, four or five because it shows a real lack of respect for the opposition, being really fragmentised, slack and sloppy.

“The intensity wasn’t there. It was disarray, it was just hope. It came down to a moment of brilliance and Ronaldo has saved them again.”
