Man Utd legend Ferdinand tells Liverpool, Arsenal fans: Sit down and shut up

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has melted down on social media clashing with Arsenal and Liverpool fans.

Ferdinand took to Twitter to congratulate Burnley, who moved up to fourth in the Premier League after Tuesday's 1-0 win over Stoke.

But Ferdinand's praise for the Lancashire team soon turned into a strange criticism of supporters of Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal.

He bizarrely stated: "His team are producing consistent results week in, week out. Those boys needs some serious saluting, the team, the staff the players, everything.

"But Arsenal fans, Liverpool fans, Spurs fans I suggest you come off social media.

"I don't want to see any of you there chatting any breeze, don't talk to me.

"Don't come with any stupid talk to me. You are below Burnley, shut up and sit in your place."
