Rio Ferdinand claims Chelsea will finish outside top four this season; Here is his full statement.
Well Rio has definitely bitten off more than he can chew in the recent interview by The Mirror when he claimed that Chelsea is not among the clubs to finish in the top four positions in the EPL.
This claim of course got Chelsea fans upset which they responded to his clumsy statement in a brawl of tweets.
Here is what Rio Ferdinand said;
In quotes picked up by The Mirror, he claimed that the Blues would only manage 5th in the table:
“I think it [the top six in order] will go Man City, Liverpool, Spurs, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal,” said the former England international.
His logic for Chelsea falling off the pace was related more to bad vibes at the club than just how much better our rivals are looking:
“I don’t care about results in pre-season, it was more the aftermath,” Ferdinand said of Tuchel’s comments following the 4-0 friendly loss to Arsenal.
“There must be some things happening behind the scenes that we’re not aware of as yet, he seems disgruntled and unhappy. There are maybe some players angling for a move behind-the-scenes that we’re not aware of. He’s brought Sterling in who will be a great addition, but if they lose the players that they’re talking about losing.”
