Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has taken another swipe at his old manager David Moyes after admitting he did not enjoy being told how to work on his defensive play under the Scot.

Moyes endured a torrid campaign in his single season in charge of United, with the club slipping to 7th in the Premier League table with largely the same group of players that had won the title the previous year.

Moyes was sacked before the end of the 2013/14 season, while Ferdinand also left Old Trafford that summer, and is now with relegation strugglers Queens Park Rangers.

Although clearly past his peak, Ferdinand was still a key player for the Red Devils last term, and admitted he was not happy to take pointers from Moyes, whose time in charge was such a disaster.

“The only manager who thought he should tell me how to play with another centre-back was David Moyes,” the ex-England man is quoted in the Daily Mirror.

“I think it’s fair to say I wasn’t having that.”

This is not the first time the veteran centre-back has been vocal about his displeasure at working under the former Everton boss.
