It is every Manchester United supporter’s worst nightmare.

Usually your kids follow the same route as their elders, but Rio Ferdinand appears to have a big problem on his hands.

The retired England defender is still a huge Manchester United supporter after a decorated 11-year career at Old Trafford.

Ferdinand won six Premier League titles, the Champions League and three League Cups at the Red Devils.

However, his son appears to have developed a soft spot for Arsenal judging by Ferdinand’s latest Instagram post.

Ferdinand posted the above photo on the photo-sharing app and wrote the following caption: “What is that doing on my boys poster!??! Said he doesnt support em but wants to play for them at the Emirates😤”

Given the Gunners’s current status as Premier League title contenders and United’s continued penchant for turgid football, perhaps it is no surprise that Arsenal are a much more appealing option.

However, Ferdinand will be hoping a United victory over Arsene Wenger’s side at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon can persuade his son to stay true to his father’s roots.
