Man Utd's Ferdinand: Derby defeat embarrassing

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand branded last week's derby defeat as "embarrassing".

He was left so shattered by the experience that he shut himself away in his house.

He admitted: "The defeat against City was disappointing and embarrassing. I didn't want to go out of the house the day after.

"Your personal pride takes a beating with any defeat but even more so if it is a loss to your local rivals."
