Manchester United legends Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville have joked that they are signing off from Twitter after Liverpool were crowned Premier League champions.

Former United centre-back Ferdinand tweeted: ‘Brb @Twitter… see you in a couple weeks!’.

However, shortly afterwards he praised Jurgen Klopp’s team, tweeting: ‘Congrats @LFC… Premier League Champions
’28 wins out of 31 games….nothing but praise for you! Thoroughly deserved…. Relentless appetite….especially losing it last season after being so good. Mentally tough!’.
Neville, meanwhile, simply tweeted a waving emoji.

The former right-back certainly didn’t want to discuss Liverpool’s remarkable feat, which had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Once the league started, however, it appeared only a matter of time before Liverpool were crowned champions, such was the substantial nature of their lead over Manchester City.
Earlier in the season Neville had tweeted a video of himself unpopping a bottle of champagne when Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the league came to an end as they were beaten by Watford.
Sky Sports also poked fun at Neville, tweeting a video captioned: ‘Has anyone seen @GNev2?’. #WheresGary
