United Peoples TV: Manchester United fans show support with Rio Ferdinand chant

by Ben Topliss

A wonderful show of support from Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion fans on Saturday saw them applaud and chant the name of Rio Ferdinand in the fifth minute of the match between the two sides in remembrance of his late wife Rebecca.

The day before, Rebecca had passed away following a short battle with cancer.

An outpouring of grief from the football community has seen fans of all clubs unite in their support of Ferdinand and his young family.

It was an incredibly touching display from supporters at Old Trafford and one that made us very proud. It is times like this that the furore surrounding football pales into insignificance.

The loss of Rebecca Ferdinand is incredibly tragic and she was taken far too young. Our thoughts are with Rio at this extremely difficult time.
