Moyes never made Vidic and I watch Jagielka videos - Ferdinand

Share This


Former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand has addressed rumour that old boss David Moyes made him watch clips of then Everton defender Phil Jagielka to improve his game.



The Scot took over at Old Trafford after leaving Goodison Park to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson in 2014.

He was fired in April 2014 as the champions only finished seventh in the Premier League.






Ferdinand says that  Moyes never asked him to study Jagielka, though they did get into a number of disagreements over how the team should set up defensively.


Asked if there was any truth in the Jagielka story, Ferdinand told 606 Savage Social: ‘I don’t know where that came from to be honest, that’s something that never happened.

‘Listen, Phil Jagielka was a very good player. I’m sure he wouldn’t have shown us videos of Phil of how we should be doing this and that.

‘But I don’t know where that came from. That’s just some mad tale that’s come out of nowhere. Someone has dreamed that up and it’s become a great meme.

‘Although, to be fair, we did have some heated discussions if I’m being honest. There were a few heated meetings between myself, Vida and David Moyes.

‘We didn’t agree with certain things and the certain ways things were being done. Set-ups from a defensive perspective etcetera.

‘He wanted certain things, we didn’t really agree with certain things he was saying.

‘But that’s football and I think David Moyes will probably have had that before with many different players so we weren’t the first and I’m sure we won’t be the last.’
