Rio Ferdinand blames Arsenal for Man City’s success this season

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has attributed Arsenal as the reason why Manchester City could potentially secure a treble this season.

Arsenal was initially considered strong contenders for the Premier League title after spending a significant portion of the season as league leaders. However, they were unable to maintain their momentum and secure the title.

Meanwhile, Manchester City made a remarkable comeback from a considerable point deficit to be crowned champions of England once again. With the league title in their hands, City set their sights on achieving a treble.

In the FA Cup final, City faced Ferdinand’s former club, Manchester United. Many neutrals were hoping for a United victory to thwart City’s treble aspirations. However, City emerged victorious, lifting the FA Cup trophy.

City’s final hurdle to complete the treble is the UEFA Champions League final against Inter Milan. Despite Manchester United’s defeat to City in the FA Cup final, Ferdinand places blame on Arsenal for giving City the opportunity to pursue a treble.

He said on the VIBE with FIVE podcast: “It was your job, you were ahead 93 per cent of the time.

“You was in a prime position to do that, and you folded like a pack of cards.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Beating City to the Premier League title is one of the hardest things to do and we expect everyone to know this.

However, we can also get why people do not understand this. Some of their clubs have not come this close to winning the title since Pep Guardiola came to England.

We are proud of how our boys performed in that campaign and they will continue to get our support.

Now the season is over, it’s time for the summer Arsenal quiz from our friends at Dublin Arsenal – It’s always a laugh and helps while away the time while we wait for Arsenal’s first signings to come in!

  1. Dear Rio think you should lay some blame on your old team mate seeing as how they failed to turn up in the FA cup final thus handing City the 2nd part of the treble.
    Shame those now representing your old team didn’t put as much effort into preserving your precious achievement as you are putting into, once again, slagging off Arsenal

  2. What a dildo.Thick as a plank.With manure bias streaming from his arse.On the plus side.Glad to know him & millions of other “flies” are goin* to be seriously pissed off when the noisy neighbours kiss their “ unique treble” goodbye.What 🤩

  3. These bias statements from ex United players turned pundits don’t surprise me at all. They are masters in deflecting the focus away from their own incapabilities & mysery.

    Ferdinand is oblivious to the FACT that Arsensal does nt need to win the league anytime soon. Our club is still at the pinnacle of LEAGUE HISTORY. Just like an athlete who after setting a benchmark for others to match or beat, that athlete does nt need to compete again.

  4. Apparently, in a recent article, Ferdinand also blamed Arsenal for global warming and the demise of Man Utd!!!!

  5. Of course he has a point with regards to our collapse at the end of the season… but he fails to recognise that we were the only club who challenged city and his precious united were way behind us in the league.

    What with him, Keane and Neville, it’s becoming more and more like a sideshow of s**t opinions.

  6. Ferdinand is RIGHT.

    Even Man city fans did not believe they would win the 2022/2023 EPL.😕

    We gifted it to them. 😒

  7. Rio Ferdinand should put his efforts into analysis of Manchester United’s failings. As far as Arsenal is concerned he is irrelevant and should f**k off.

  8. He’s right about us choking and not handling our business at the end.

    No mention from him about Utd not handling their business at the end. Must be in part 2 of his comments.

    I do appreciate him thinking that highly of Arsenal though, suggesting that we should have won the title after leading 93% of the season.

    Backhanded compliment, but acknowledging our progress nonetheless.
