Ferdinand facing Man Utd exit after Fergie fury

Rio Ferdinand's future at Manchester United is in serious doubt after he "embarrassed" Sir Alex Ferguson yesterday.

The Sun says Ferguson accused Ferdinand of embarrassing him after boycotting an anti- racism initiative.

The England defender will be fined two weeks' wages of £220,000 with his Manchester United future in doubt.

Fergie said: "He will be dealt with, no doubt about that. I'm disappointed with Rio for not wearing the T-shirt. It's an embarrassment for me."

Ferdinand was the only United player who refused to wear a Kick it Out warm-up top before yesterday's 4-2 win against Stoke.

His protest was in direct defiance of Ferguson who had said on the eve of the game there would be no boycott.
