Ferdinand, 43, took to Twitter during the match to share what a rotten afternoon he was having.

Late in the first period he wrote: “My phone is pinging right off…For all the wrong reasons ffs.”

He then added: “Bunker pending….”

He followed up by writing: “The gulf in class between @ManUtd & @ManCity is bigger than I thought before this game had kicked off…”

After the match, Ferdinand added: “Absolutely dismantled… gulf between the 2 sides in Manchester!

“We showed some fight 2nd half or City took foot of the gas….

“BTW Haaland is treating these CB’s in the Premier League with no respect.”

The red-hot Norwegian netted a hat-trick, already his third for City in just eight Prem games.

Phil Foden also bagged a treble, while Antony scored for United before Anthony Martial’s late brace.

Ferdinand wasn’t the only United old boy to slate his former side.

Roy Keane slammed the performance as “hugely embarrassing” – while Gary Neville claimed the Red Devils “bottled it”.

Erik ten Hag, meanwhile, gave a bizarre reason for leaving Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench.

Asked why he didn’t bring the 37-year-old on, Ten Hag explained that it was “out of respect for his big career”.
