WATCH - You have to see Rio Ferdinand's reaction to Manchester United's defeat
Rio Ferdinand lived through 90 minutes of misery as he watched Manchester United lose their showdown with Manchester City on Saturday.
The former United defender was tweeting throughout the match and his desperation was evident from these messages as City edged towards a 2-1 win. This was his reaction to City’s opening goal from Kevin De Bruyne:
He couldn’t resist poking fun at uncertain City keeper Claudio Bravo.
His hope for late salvation came to nothing:
