Rio Ferdinand's best season at Manchester United admits Sir Alex Ferguson

Rio Ferdinand is about to end his 11th campaign with Manchester United, having won the Barclays Premier League six-times and the UEFA Champions League twice.

Ferdinand, now 34-years-old, is due to hold contract talks with Sir Alex Ferguson at the end of the season for a one-year rolling contract at United.

Sir Alex Ferguson is sure that Ferdinand will put pen to paper for another year with the Reds and believes that he has been one of Manchester United’s stand out players this campaign.

Speaking with MUTV, Sir Alex Ferguson said:

“Rio Ferdinand has had his best ever season at the club

“We have had continual problems with the centre-backs being fit.

“Nemanja Vidic has missed half a season, Chris Smalling has missed most of the season, Phil Jones missed a good bit and Jonny Evans missed parts. But Rio has managed his situation very well.

“Although we have left him out of certain games because we have managed him the right way, at the most important times he has been there.”
