Something that I’ve really grown fond of over the past season or more is watching Rio Ferdinand’s reaction when we score an important goal. Just check out YouTube clips of him after Owen Hargreaves scored against Arsenal, or Carlos Tevez against Blackburn, and you’ll see him go totally apeshit.
Today, Ferdinand has answered a whole host of questions from the fans for MUTV, including his reaction to our goals.
“I can’t really say,” Rio said, after being asked what he says to his team mates when they score. “There are normally swear words involved! Usually it’s along the lines of ‘Well done’.”
He also talked about how I felt when he first signed for Manchester United.
“The first thing I remember doing when I got into the changing rooms was feeling the kit, touching the socks and realising this was a Manchester United kit,” he said. “When you walk out just before a game and the crowd’s going crazy it’s an amazing feeling. I’ve been fortunate enough to do it for the last six or seven years so hopefully that will continue for a while longer.”
