Anton Ferdinand has offered West Ham United some perspective after the harsh defeat to Manchester United.
West Ham lost in absolutely agonising circumstances against Man United on Sunday.
The Hammers had led 1-0 through Said Benrahma.
Lingard – who else – drives dagger through West Ham hearts
But goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and a last minute dagger through the heart from former hero Jesse Lingard no less – sealed a 2-1 win for the Red Devils in the 89th minute.
But not before West Ham added to the high drama when Moyes brought on captain Mark Noble to take a 93rd minute penalty which was saved by David de Gea.
West Ham fans can be proud of their side yet again.
And the Hammers would undoubtedly have won the game had Michail Antonio – stupidly sent off at Southampton the week before – been available.
Anton Ferdinand offers West Ham some perspective but brother Rio stays silent
Speaking after the match, former West Ham star Anton Ferdinand offered his old side some words of comfort.
But there was radio silence from brother Rio with the fellow former Hammer and Man United hero yet to comment.
“Gutted for Nobes,” Ferdinand said on Twitter.
“Been a fantastic week for us as a club.
“It took a wonder strike to beat us today and to be fair he (Lingard) should be in claret and blue. #PROUDHAMMER.”
Rio quiet – just like PAI Capital bid he is backing
Rio has – rather unusually – not commented on the game.
The brilliant former defender turned pundit has split loyalties.
But he has been criticised by West Ham fans for favouring his connections to Man United over the Hammers in the past.
And he angered West Ham fans earlier this summer when he tagged Declan Rice into a post urging Manchester United to sign the midfielder.
A few weeks later he and his brother Anton were officially announced as backers of the PAI Capital bid to take over West Ham.
