Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand trolled Manchester City hero Joleon Lescott

United legend Ferdinand provided academic insights for BT Sport alongside former rivals Lescott, who won two Premier League titles while at the Etihad.

The two former England internationals met before kick-off and had a chat which was recorded by the former Red Devils captain.

And the City hero seemed quite cocky, something his legendary fellow defender didn’t appreciate.

Ferdinand said: “Look at this guy, he loves it.

“I don’t like the way you strut about. Your boasting is too much.”

Lescott cheekily replied, “Feels like home, feels like home.”

But the former centre-back’s words aged badly as United dealt a hammer blow to City’s title chances at Old Trafford.

Not forgetting Lescott’s cockiness, Ferdinand posted their chat in a compilation video on Instagram after Erik ten Hag’s men completed their triumphant comeback.

And the 44-year-old joked that his former rival needed a “stretcher” after his favorite team’s heartbreaking defeat.

Ferdinand issued the following caption: “Landed up at Old Trafford…left on a stretcher πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ @joleonlescott πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸ”΄.”

Ferdinand also included clips of him partying backstage alongside former teammate Paul Scholes.

Lescott was also present but was furious as United turned the game upside down in just four minutes.

An enthusiastic Ferdinand shouted: “It’s a goal, we scored United yes.”

He then panned the camera to Lescott and added: “Go on Jole, go on Joleon.”

The City hero then argued the equalizer should not have stood due to interference from Rashford.
