Football fans have been sharing their thoughts on Rio Ferdinand's injury on Twitter:
Shocking fans saying Ferdinand deserved the coin to the face wow I guess it's a crime to celebrate a goal
I know its bad what happened to ferdinand but he always provokes the oppositions fans. Its in his nature. Poor attitude since he was a kid.
Not good to see Ferdinand hit by a coin, but sadly it now seems a risk you run if you celebrate & therefore incite your rivals fans.
