‘Babbling Rio’ – Man City fans react as Rio Ferdinand urges City star to quit the Club


Man City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays a comment by former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand urging John Stones to quit the Citizens and join West Ham United this summer.

Much was expected of the Englishman when he arrived at the Etihad Stadium, but the defender failed to take his game to the next level under Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola has preferred holding midfielder Fernandinho at centre-half at times which is an ominous sign for the former Everton defender.

City’s signing of Nathan Ake from Bournemouth, has led to growing speculation that Stones could leave this summer.

Speaking to the Daily mail, Rio Ferdinand is quoted as having said: “He really has to look at himself and his situation closely, with the Euros coming up next year, he has to make a big decision.”

“In fact, I don’t even think it’s a big decision to leave – it’s just the right decision. If he wants to be a top centre-half and play for England again, he can’t stay at City,” he added.

In reaction to Ferdinand’s opinion shared on Twitter by City Chief, City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
