Manchester United Fans Are Worried Rio Ferdinand Is A Huge Curse After Sheffield United Defeat

Manchester United Fans Are Worried Rio Ferdinand Is A Huge Curse After Sheffield United Defeat

Manchester United fans are convinced Rio Ferdinand's messages of support for the club are 'cursing' them when it comes to results.

The Red Devils lost 2-1 to Sheffield United on Wednesday evening and it was their first Premier League defeat of 2021.

It's a result that came out of nowhere but some think they've found the cause - Ferdinand's confidence in the team.

On Tuesday, BT Sport's Jake Humphrey said he'd see Ferdinand for United's game and he replied: "We'll see Manchester United go back top of the league, yeah."

Tuesday also saw the former United defender tweet: "Is that the @premierleague table there?"

Back in 2019, Ferdinand became a meme for his passionate 'Ole's at the wheel man, Man United are back' speech following the their legendary comeback win over Paris Saint-Germain.

United won two of their final 12 games that season following those comments and failed to make the Premier League top four.

While the 42-year-old's intentions are pure and he's just showing support, fans are noticing a trend.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his side were missing a "bit of magic" against the Blades.

"We didn't create enough and didn't penetrate in behind to score enough goals.

"The magic was missing, that bit extra. They defended well, fair play to them. We didn't have the right ideas or the solutions. They weren't there.

"Conceding the second goal was poor. So sloppy. We stopped getting out to the ball, and that's completely out of character.

"No big inquest. We are disappointed. We have seen so many results this season out of character. Today, surprised, but with the world as it is we had been the most consistent side.

"We dust off the sad feeling and go again."
