"It's A Phone Call Man, Just Call Me" - Ferdinand Sends Message To Solskjaer After Cristiano Ronaldo 'Row'

Rio Ferdinand has urged Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to 'call him' after insisting it's 'all love' between the duo.

Solskjaer recently shot down his former teammate's comments on Phil Jones' injury issues and Cristiano Ronaldo 'being the manager'.

Ferdinand has quickly moved to simmer all tensions however with a public message on his YouTube channel.

He joked on Vibe with Five: "Ole's come for me the other day in the paper! He came for me, I can't believe it!

"When I see Ole, I'm going to give him a big hug. I'm going to shake his hand and say, 'it's all love, I love you, man!' I'm his biggest fan.

"Ole's at the wheel, it wasn't happening until I said it. I've got no beef, I've got no beef with anyone at Man United.

"Some stuff is said in the heat of the moment, and you get things wrong here and there. It's a phone call, man, just call me."

It all initially started when Ferdinand called Jones a 'waste of time' following years on the sidelines.

Solskjaer hit back at Ferdinand, explaining he was 'out of order' in his assessment of Jones' struggles.

Following United's 2-1 loss to Young Boys last Tuesday, an image of Ronaldo stood next to Solskjaer on the touchline emerged.

When asked about the comments, Solskjaer was dismissive and criticised his former teammate for a lack of understanding.

"Rio, again you know, sometimes he comments on things he doesn't really know," he said per Metro. "It should have been a yellow card for the boy when he brought down Nemanja (Matic). Both Bruno (Fernandes) and Cristiano, as competitive as they are, suddenly I had them on my shoulder."

Ferdinand went on to stress there's no malice in his words and all he wants is to see United do well.

"When I see Ole, it's all love, hugs and kisses, that's it,' he continued. "I understand it, because he's under pressure, it's big pressure.

"There are people throwing questions at you and you react in the heat of the moment, I get it.

"At the end of the day, I think they know deep down that there's no malice in me. They've all shared a dressing room with me, they know what I'm like.

"If I'm wrong, I'll hold my hands up, like I did last week with Phil Jones."
