Rio Ferdinand slams Arsenal for ‘folding like a pack of cards’ to allow possible Man City treble

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has pointed the finger at Arsenal ahead of a possible Man City hat-trick.

City are one game away from equaling United’s famous 1998/99 campaign by winning three major trophies in one season.

With the Premier League and FA Cup already over, Pep Guardiola’s side will face Inter Milan in the Champions League final on Saturday night.

United were lucky enough to stop City in the FA Cup final but suffered a 2-1 defeat at Wembley.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have spent 248 days at the top of the Premier League table, longer than any team in history without winning it.

Despite United’s missed chance, former defender Ferdinand believes the Gunners are responsible for putting City on the brink of history.

Speaking on the VIBE with FIVE podcast, Ferdinand said: “It was your job, you were ahead 93% of the time.

“You were in a prime position to do so, and you folded like a deck of cards.”

Asked about United’s defeat in the FA Cup final, Ferdinand insisted Erik ten Hag’s side had never had a chance.

He added: “It was over before it started.

“I had no sincere belief that we could win. It was 50/50 that day, but it wasn’t real 50/50.

“They’re the best team, they’ve been together a lot longer, they’re in a vein of rich form.”
