Rio Ferdinand has revealed he was in A&E on Sunday evening – and he joked Manchester United’s mauling at the hands of Liverpool was behind the hospital visit.

The retired footballer, who made over 300 appearances for the Red Devils between 2002 and 2014, lamented his former team’s 5-0 loss to their bitter rivals as he shared a snap of his feet in a hospital bed.

Along with a string of angry emojis, he wrote on Twitter: ‘This 60 mins have sent me to A&E… FFS’

Even being in A&E didn’t stop Rio, 42, from keeping an eye on the game, as he shared the same photo on his Instagram Story and added: ‘Sat in A&E watching this… ffs’

It wasn’t a good day for the BT Sport pundit, who branded United’s performance a ‘disgrace’.

Just 15 minutes into the match – when United were already losing 2-0 – he tweeted: ‘What am I seeing…’

The team were embarrassed at their Old Trafford home as Mo Salah netted a hattrick after Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also scored in the first half.

United star Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal disallowed for offside, and has taken to social media and insisted the players should shoulder the blame for the loss.

He wrote: ‘Sometimes the result is not the one we fight for. Sometimes the score is not the one we want. And this is on us, only on us, because there’s no one else to blame.

‘Our fans were, once again, amazing in their constant support. They deserve better than this, much better, and it’s up to us to deliver. The time is now!’

Meanwhile, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shrugged off speculation he could leave his job after the heavy defeat.

‘I do believe in myself. I do believe that I’m getting close to what I want with the club. I think what we’ve done, what I’ve seen, the development,’ he told reporters after the game.

‘Of course, the results lately haven’t been good enough, I have to say, and that’s… hands up. And that brings doubt in anyone’s mind, probably. But I’ve got to keep strong and I do believe in what we’ve been doing.’
