“I’m not happy with Rio about that, I think he stepped over the line for me.”
Trevor Sinclair has hit out at Rio Ferdinand over comments he made about Phil Jones during the week.
Speaking on his YouTube series, Ferdinand said that if he was currently at United, he wouldn’t speak to Jones around the club.
Ferdinand, who wasn’t happy with Jones signing a recent contract with the club, said: “If I was in a squad with someone like that, I’m not talking to them. They’re a waste of time. Why am I chatting to you and giving you any energy? Taking that away from my other teammates who are here to play and go into battle for 90 minutes every week.”

“I look at Phil Jones I see a player that has been crippled with injuries over the years, all different kinds of injuries as well.
