Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand took aim at Arsenal fans for leaving the Emirates Stadium early during their disappointing loss to Aston Villa.

In a match where Arsenal’s title hopes took a severe hit, with Villa securing a crucial victory in their quest for Champions League qualification, fans started leaving the stadium as the clock wound down. 

Ferdinand, quick to notice the exodus, shared a picture on social media with the caption: “Early train Arsenal fans??? Ffs” accompanied by a head-in-hands emoji, expressing his frustration at the premature departure of supporters.

The atmosphere at the Emirates has faced criticism in the past, despite recent rallying behind the team under Mikel Arteta’s management. Tension mounted throughout the match, particularly as Arsenal failed to capitalise on opportunities to close the gap on league leaders Manchester City.


Just a month ago, Ferdinand voiced his disapproval of Arsenal fans for what he described as becoming overly enthusiastic about some of the team’s recent performances. This criticism was directed towards Joel Beya, an Arsenal supporter who co-hosts Vibe With Five with Ferdinand.

Ferdinand said: “There are three teams playing now to win the league which is Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal – I actually want you boys to win it, but you and some of your fans make me not want you to win it.”

Ferdinand’s comments come in the wake of Arsenal’s first defeat since New Year’s Eve, highlighting their struggles in recent fixtures. With City now enjoying a two-point lead at the top of the table, Arsenal face mounting pressure to perform, especially with a crucial Champions League clash against Bayern Munich looming.

Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has refused to concede defeat with six matches remaining before the end of the season.

“If one result is going to (make our season fade out), then we are not strong enough,” Arteta said. “Now it’s a big test for us. After losing any game the players are frustrated and sad. But we have a beautiful opportunity that hasn’t happened for 15 years in this club to go to the semi finals of the Champions League. It couldn’t come in a better moment.

“We can’t control City – what we can control is that when we have the run we had when you win, win, win, win, it’s easy. The moment is now. After this blow, it’s how we react. We have the best opportunity to react against Bayern Munich on Wednesday. The team has to show it. If you want to win, you have to overcome these situations.”
