Rio Ferdinand has lifted the lid on the WhatsApp group featuring a string of former Manchester United stars, although cannot reveal all or ‘some people wouldn’t work again.’

The Red Devils legend gave some insight into the banter with his fellow ex-players, revealing that he is the admin of the group chat.

The former England defender said Dimitar Berbatov has been a recent addition and has not been afraid to fire shots, despite being quite the opposite as a player.

Ferdinand told FIVE: ‘Berba’s just come in and letting off smoke! He is on it! He’s gone from the quietest man in the dressing room…he is like Patrice Evra now out there, just blowing people up!

‘Sending pictures, lookalikes, hammering people in terms of their ability. “You were dead, you were rubbish, you can’t talk about certain asects of the game because you were rubbish at that.” On it! He is on it!

‘If I could give you the transcript out of it, some people wouldn’t work again. Certain people’s careers would be put to dust, the way people are getting dismissed in this group. Ruthless.’

Asked who is the funniest member of the group, Ferdinand gave a shout out to Anderson and Quinton Fortune, although said that the former can barely speak English.

‘Ando is quite funny,’ he said. ‘Quinton Fortune’s funny. Quinton Fortune just hammers everyone. Puts emojis or pictures of people.

‘There’s certains aspects of people that we remember when we played that I can’t get into because it’s quite personal that get brought up regularly.’

On Anderson he said: ‘He can’t speak English, bruv! If I played you his voice notes, he starts chatting and we go, “what are you saying bruv?” He says people’s names and we go, “who’s that?”

‘He was here for four, five, six years, he doesn’t know how to say “thank you”.’
