Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has named the three football stars he hated playing against during his professional days as a footballer.
Ferdinand picked the likes of former Manchester City striker, Mario Balotelli and former Liverpool attackers, Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez, as the players he did not like playing against.
Speaking on his podcast Vibe with Five, the former England defender said: “I hated Balotelli, hated him. He did a couple of things I did not like with the fans and I thought he was rude.
“But I chat with him now, lovely geezer. It is mad because I would see him after and it would only be respectful. In the games, in the end, I respected it, he was an animal on the pitch.”
He added, “Didn’t like Suarez, didn’t like Torres. He stamped on my foot.
“I had an injection, for ages, it was killing me, and I got a scar on my foot.”
