Man Utd defender Ferdinand admits losing title still burns him up

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand admits the manner of losing the title to Manchester City still burns him up.

United let slip an eight-point lead with six games to go last term as Manchester City finished top of the pile on goal difference.

Centre-back Ferdinand, 33, said: "Fair play to City. You've got to be a good team to win the league, so I wouldn't take anything away from them.

"But if you gave us the last few games of the season and put us in that situation again, it wouldn't happen - it was just madness.

"That's down to us, though. We take full blame for it and don't look to anyone else."
