Furious Alex Ferguson accused Rio Ferdinand of embarrassing him after boycotting an anti-racism initiative. By this conduct, the England defender will be fined two weeks’ wages of £220,000 with his Manchester United future in doubt.

Fergie said: “He will be dealt with, no doubt about that. I’m disappointed with Rio for not wearing the T-shirt. It’s an embarrassment for me.”

Ferdinand was the only United player who refused to wear a Kick it Out warm-up top before yesterday’s 4-2 win against Stoke.

Ferdinand Failed To Join His Team Mates In Wearing ‘Kick It Out’ Tops

His protest was in direct defiance of Ferguson who had said on the eve of the game there would be no boycott.

The Old Trafford boss said: “I’m very disappointed because I said in the Press conference yesterday the players would be wearing it.

“We’re all wearing the badges and he goes and lets us down. But we’ll deal with it, don’t worry.”

Ferdinand was undoubtedly refusing to wear the top in protest at the punishment John Terry received after being found guilty by the FA of racially abusing his brother Anton.

Terry received a four-game ban and a fine of £220,000.
