Rio Ferdinand’s brutal dig against Douglas Luiz rallies Manchester United fans: “Bro is crying in the toilet”

After all the years of being a Manchester United player, it’s no surprise that Rio Ferdinand continues to support Manchester United as a fan. Just like most former players, who are always publicly backing the club, Rio Ferdinand is also no different. The Manchester United legend follows the club closely and watches their matches.

He also shows his support for them on social media, including Twitter. Generally, he’s a big fan of the club and also has a podcast where he invites former players of the club for a chat. Rio Ferdinand took to Twitter yesterday to take a sly dig at Aston Villa’s midfielder Douglas Luiz after the Brazilian did a silly celebration after scoring a leveler yesterday.

Rio Ferdinand takes sly dig at Douglas Luiz

Manchester United traveled to Villa Park yesterday to face Aston Villa in the Premier League on the back of a good run in 2024. Unai Emery’s men had a slight advantage in the win probability, but United scored the first goal of the game through Rasmus Hojlund, who broke his Premier League goal drought against the Villans in the reverse leg in December to go on a five-game consecutive scoring streak.

Sadly, United conceded a sloppy goal from a corner, as Douglas Luiz booted in a goal and did a crazy dance jubilation in front of United goalkeeper Andre Onana. Luiz’s celebration didn’t last long, as United got the winner in the 86th minute of the game through Scot McTominay, who has been receiving a lot of praise in the media for his match-winning goal.

Rio Ferdinand took to Twitter to send a brutal dig at Douglas Luiz for his silly dance after scoring the equalizer against Manchester United. “You okay?” the former Manchester United defender mockingly asked Luiz on Twitter.

Fans thrilled after Man Utd defeat Aston Villa

Manchester United continued their great unbeaten record in 2024 with a 2-1 win over fifth-placed Aston Villa, much to the fans’ excitement. The Red Devils went into the tie eight points behind Unai Emery’s men, who would have extended the advantage to 11 points if they had beaten Erik Ten Hag’s United.

However, United started strongly when Rasmus Hojlund showed his poaching ability to get on the end of Harry Maguire’s header in the box to fire United into the lead in the 17th minute of the game. United maintained good momentum and ended the first half on the front foot.

Ten Hag’s men put their feet off the pedal in the second half, giving Aston Villa more room to attack, with Onana producing some world-class saves to deny Aston Villa.

There was nothing he could do to stop Douglas Luiz from shooting home from close range to equalize in the 67th minute. However, United had the last laugh when Scott McTominay scored the winner in the 86th minute to put United five points clear of seventh-placed Newcastle and five behind fifth-placed Aston Villa.
