Rio Ferdinand admits he ‘never got over’ Sergio Aguero goal that sank Man Utd’s title dreams

Rio Ferdinand has admitted suffering flashbacks to the moment Manchester United were denied the Premier League title on the final day of the 2011/12 season.

It is a title race that is forever written into football folklore for the twists and turns it provided, right down to the last few seconds of the campaign. Uniteddidn’t look fazed by the pressure, though, as a goal from Wayne Rooney earned Sir Alex Ferguson’s team an away win at Sunderland. At that moment, the title seemed to be theirs, only to slip through their fingers seconds later.

Meanwhile, Manchester City had already found an equaliser against QPR through Edin Dzeko in added time but there was more drama to come. It set the stage for Sergio Aguero’s last-gasp winner to clinch City’s first Premier League title. Ferdinand admits it is a day he will never forget and he argues that this season’s runners-up Arsenal did not experience nearly the same level of heartbreak.
