RIO FERDINAND took a cheeky swipe at Joleon Lescott after Manchester United’s controversial comeback win over Manchester City.
City took the lead through Jack Grealish before Marcus Rashford scored a late winner after his involvement in Bruno Fernandes’ debatable equaliser.
United legend Ferdinand provided punditry for BT Sport alongside former rival Lescott, who won two Premier League titles during his time at the Etihad.
The two former England internationals met before kick-off and had a conversation which was recorded by the ex-Red Devils captain.
And the City hero seemed quite cocky, something his fellow legendary defender didn’t appreciate.
Ferdinand said: “Look at this guy, he loves it.
“I don’t like the way you’re walking about swaggering. Your swagger is too much.”
Lescott cheekily responded: “Feels like home this, feels like home.”
But the former centre-back’s words aged poorly as United delivered a hammer blow to City’s title chances at Old Trafford.
Ferdinand didn’t forget Lescott’s cockiness and posted their chat on Instagram in a compilation video after Erik ten Hag’s men completed their triumphant comeback.

And the 44-year-old joked that his former rival needed a “stretcher” after his favourite team’s heartbreaking loss.
Ferdinand issued the following caption: “Came bouncing into Old Trafford… left on a stretcher @joleonlescott .”
Ferdinand also included clips of him celebrating alongside former team-mate Paul Scholes while backstage .
Lescott was also present but was fuming with United turning the game on its head within just four minutes.
An ecstatic Ferdinand yelled: “It’s a goal, we scored United yeah.”
He then panned the camera to Lescott, adding: “Go on Jole, go on Joleon.”
The City hero then argued the equaliser should not have stood due to the interference from Rashford.
