Rio Ferdinand admits the prospect of Manchester City winning the Premier League is the ‘better of two evils’.
City trail league leaders Liverpool by two points at the international break, though do have a game in hand on their title rivals.
Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand admits a City title win would be easier to watch, as his former side’s two greatest rivals fight it out to be crowned champions.
‘This is the worst possible case scenario for someone that likes Man United, supports Man United and has played for Man United, and I’m a pundit that’s got to speak about it publicly and squirm and what not,’ Ferdinand told the Daily Mirror.
‘So the better of the two evils is Manchester City winning the league as I’ve seen it, I’ve been part of it.’
‘With Liverpool it’s a different story.
‘There’s fans I didn’t even know supported Liverpool that have come back out of the woodwork after 20 years of being silent that are starting to speak before they’ve won anything so it’d be a lot more painful to see them win the league.
‘But listen the best team will win it and whoever that is well done.’
