Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is shocked by the sacking of Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo this morning.

Di Matteo was axed on Wednesday morning following the Blues' damaging 3-0 Champions League defeat against Juventus in Turin.

Ferdinand, who has only worked under Sir Alex Ferguson during his decade at Old Trafford, wrote on his Twitter page: "Wow, Chelsea have sacked their manager!! I'm a bit late I know but its a madness.

"The stability at our club is something our manager rarely gets praise for...don't under estimate that. #LambChopped."
