The war of words between Manchester United and Chelsea legends, Rio Ferdinand and John Terry, respectively, has continued.

Ferdinand last night hit out at the former Chelsea captain after he rubbished his (Ferdinand) all-time centre-back rankings.

Ferdinand, who slammed Terry’s ‘fragile ego’, went further to bring up the racism storm that embroiled his ex-international team-mate, when Terry was accused of racially abusing Ferdinand’s brother, Anton Ferdinand.

It started when Ferdinand conducted a seemingly innocuous interview with Liverpool star, Virgil van Dijk this week, in which the pair ranked the greatest ever Premier League centre-backs.

Ferdinand picked himself as number one and surprisingly put both Van Dijk and Jaap Stam ahead of Terry, his former England team-mate and captain, even though Terry’s collection of trophies far exceeds both players.

Ferdinand then put Terry at number five on his list, but the Chelsea star felt insulted by the ranking and posted a string of images on Instagram highlighting his many accolades and titles alongside the message: “Opinions are great but stats don’t lie…”

But Terry’s rebuttal did not go down well with Ferdinand, who came back to accuse Terry of being insecure.

Rio Ferdinand tweeted, “The moment one has to start pushing their own records and stats it’s really time to start addressing the fragile ego.

“You’re lucky I even put you in the top five after the racism case with my brother, so be thankful you made it.”

Terry was dragged to court after it appeared he racially abused Anton in 2007, but was found not guilty over the allegations.

But his FA charges stood and he was handed a four-match ban and fined £200,000.

Terry later responded to Ferdinand again, tweeting, “A fragile ego is putting yourself at number one. Thanks for putting me in your top five.”

He further retweeted another post listing his many accolades.

“Stats don’t lie: not guilty,” he wrote, echoing his previous comment.

He then hit back at a fan telling him to address Ferdinand’s racial abuse comment, saying “addressed it, now what?”

In any team around anywhere, Ferdinand would be a second sub to Terry. So this loud mouth silliness is  stupid. Ferdinand had  his  good days at the lousy neighbors .com yet  John accomplished far more on the field than him. This is not about race, but  our realities. Terry was simply a far better player  and defender than you man.

Thank you mate, you know your football. Ferdinand should thank his God he had an excellent defender in Vidic who played beside him during his time at Manu, else, he'd have just been another Maguire, a flop. Thank God he brought the racism thing up, so it is obvious to everyone that his rubbish list not about who the best defenders were, it's just sentiments. Even me that didn't watch much of EPL in the 90s will still name a whole lot of defenders much better than Ferdinand. Terry is miles ahead of Ferdinand.

You got my popint chief. Ferdinand himself  is no less fickle minded prejudice perpetrator. He and many others with Caribbean roots hate to see other blacks with african heritage. Hope you recall  what Ian Wright did top the black lad few years ago.  Indeed Vidic was the man who did  the job.

Yea. A lot of them hate blacks from Africa with passion. A lot of these Manu legends are really a shame. Their club is in shambles but all they can do is sit their butts on couch and run their mouth. They need to go learn from AC Milan legends and see how they've helped return their club to glory.
