But the Norwegian hit back, saying: “Rio, again you know, sometimes he comments on things he doesn’t really know.
“It’s not like he was coaching players. No.
“Both Bruno and Cristiano, as competitive as they are, suddenly I had them on my shoulder.
“They were there for a brief spell and shouted at the referee.
“That was the aggravation of getting a few bad decisions against us.
“But then Cristiano sat down and Bruno sat down.”
Solskjaer took a pop at Ferdinand last month after the TV pundit said he was “baffled” by Phil Jones being given a new contract.
The duo played together at Old Trafford for five years between 2002 and 2007.
‘PASSION’ Ahead of their visit to West Ham today, United’s boss added: “We know there is only one man allowed in the technical area and that’s either me or Carras (Michael Carrick), Mick (Phelan) or Kieran (McKenna).
“We thought it should have been a yellow card for Christopher Martin when he brought down Nemanja Matic.
“So I don’t have any problem with them showing some passion and then sitting back down.”
