The Manchester United legend wasn’t impressed after a video of the Arsenal manager being fed steak by Salt Bae went viral online.
Mikel Arteta came under an avalanche of criticism after a video of him eating steak while on holiday at famous chef Salt Bae’s restaurant earlier this month went viral.
The incident occurred after the Gunners’ three-game losing streak which only amplified the negative feedback.
Speaking on his podcast Vibe with Five, Rio Ferdinand claimed that ‘only an Arsenal manager would be that stupid’.
“He [Salt Bae] was feeding some of the guests at my wedding like that. If I’m paying for that he ain’t feeding me nothing, not having it, but he was going around some of the guests doing that.” He said.
“A Man United manager ain’t doing that, only an Arsenal manager would do that type of stupidness. Pep [Guardiola] ain’t doing that.”
