Fans tear into Rio Ferdinand and Robbie Savage for 'biased' Man Utd commentary as footage emerges
| Last updated
Fans have ripped into Rio Ferdinand and Robbie Savage for their commentary during Manchester United's draw with Galatasaray.
However, two consecutive free-kicks from Hakim Ziyech caught Andre Onana out in goal, before Kerem Akturkoglu completed the comeback to draw 3-3 in Istanbul.
Meanwhile, viewers on TNT Sports were left outraged by Ferdinand and Savage's commentary, believing they were biased towards Ten Hag's side.
Footage has since emerged of the pair stood alongside Darren Fletcher in the gantry, celebrating each United goal.
Ferdinand was also spotted scrolling through his phone at the time Galatasaray equalised, with fans calling out the former England defender's lack of professionalism.
Replying to the video on Twitter, one fan wrote: "Ferdinand flicking through his phone while on comms, missing one of the goals in the process, like a true pro."
Another remarked: "Isn’t the commentary supposed to be neutral?"
While a third chimed in: "The two most annoying blokes together on one commentary team. Was painful to listen to."
A fourth added: "Why impose it on viewers? Get decent co Comms not cheerleaders!"
Another reply read: "I didn’t watch it but I’ve heard Ferdinand and Savage were ridiculously biased. It’s not MUTV."
While a sixth exclaimed: "Surely commentators are supposed to be neutral?!? Believe it or not … a lot of us didn’t want United to win and the constant cheering / overreacting to bang average players apparently being ‘world class’ was simply embarrassing."
