Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has slammed UEFA and their president Michel Platini over the fine handed out to Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner. Bendtner has been banned for one competitive fixture and fined the striker 100,000 (£80,383) for exposing sponsored underwear in Denmark's European Championship defeat to Portugal last Wednesday.
Ferdinand wrote on Twitter: "Uefa are you for real??? £80,000 fine for Bendtner for underwear advertising.... all of the racism fines together don't even add up to that?!
"Uefa are not serious... Platini was a great player but him & his colleagues alienate themselves with exactly this type of rubbish. If racism made money for Uefa like advertising does do you think Uefa would take it as serious?? #priorities"
