Manchester United fans rage at Ed Woodward following Rio Ferdinand admission

Manchester United fans have reacted furiously to how Ed Woodward handled the departure of Rio Ferdinand from the club.

The Red Devils legend spent 12 years at United making 455 appearances and scoring eight goals. During this time, he won six Premier League titles, one European Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup, and two League Cups. (h/t Man Utd)

He abruptly departed the club in 2014 in unceremonious circumstances, thanks to Ed Woodward.

Rather than give Ferdinand a heads up on his future, Woodward informed the defender on the final day of the 2013-14 season that his services were no longer needed. (h/t The Sun)

The insensitive way the whole scenario was handled reflects poorly on the club. A legend who gave his all for United, Ferdinand should have been afforded more respect.

A number of United fans took to Twitter to react to the news. We look at a few of them below.
