Former Manchester United Rio Ferdinand likes to show the world that he is staying in shape after slipping into retirement, but his workout routines have been mocked by former colleagues.

Patrice Evra and Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed considerable success alongside the ex-England international at Old Trafford as part of a star-studded squad under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Neither is showing signs of slowing down, but Ferdinand believes both could learn a thing or two from him in the art of longevity.

Evra and Ronaldo are not too sure, though, with both taking the opportunity to question the methods of a former team-mate.

Ferdinand hit back by saying: “I told you before it will mess you up bro! Start now and you might play until you are 50!!!”

The trolling was not over yet, though, with Evra quipping in with: “First man ever walked?? Can you please stop @rioferdy5 or you can come and wash my floor bro I love this game ahhaahahahah.”

Ferdinand took the abuse in his stride and ensured that he would have the last word by offering the following response to his diminutive former colleague: “This is the height I have to be at to talk to you bro!”
