Man Utd's Ferdinand still hitting out at 'ignorant' Blatter

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has continued to voice his disapproval towards FIFA president Sepp Blatter via Twitter.

Blatter yesterday made comments suggesting that a handshake could go a long way to resolving any racial conflict between players at the end of a game which Ferdinand took to with passion and fervor.

Today, the United centre-half was sticking with his view of Blatter who in the past has called for women to become more involved in the game by wearing skimpy outfits whilst stating that homosexuals should 'refrain from any sexual activities' when in Qatar for the 2022 World Cup as homosexuality is banned there.

"To say what you said about racism in football spoke volumes of your ignorance to the subject," Ferdinand wrote.

"I guess you now have the full support of all the women, gay community plus people against racism in football....

"If we want to stamp out racism in society a football pitch is a good place to start- loved by billions of people around the world."
