Rio Ferdinand has been criticised for comments he made in which he defended Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley.

Speaking ahead of the Magpies’ clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on BT Sport, the former Manchester United and England defender said he understood Ashley’s dealings in the transfer windows as he attempts to sell the club.



They can’t be aiming at being a Manchester United or a Manchester City.



You wouldn’t spend on your house when you want to sell it.” His comments prompted an angry reaction on social media, with pundits and fans calling Ferdinand out.

He’s spent money at that football club, he’s just not going to spend it at this time.

“What I’m saying is, I think Mike Ashley, you can’t hammer him and say that he should be spending when he wants to sell the club.
