Manchester United legend joins many fans in slamming hooligans for attack on Ed Woodward’s house

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has been among those to hit out at the behaviour of the so-called fans who attacked Ed Woodward’s house.

Footage emerged on social media last night of a small group of United supporters throwing flares at the home of the club’s executive vice-chairman, with the Premier League giants releasing a statement condemning those involved.

Former United star Ferdinand has also tweeted to hit out at those involved, with this story getting a big reaction on social media this morning.
