Ferdinand has Man Utd role, insists Moyes

Rio Ferdinand is still wanted at Manchester United, David Moyes has confirmed, despite the defender being absent from the team since early December, according to ESPN.

In the time since Ferdinand made his last appearance for United, Jonny Evans, Nemanja Vidic, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have all lined up at centre-back. Ferdinand’s United contract expires next summer, the website notes, and it is not thought he will be offered fresh terms.


Moyes however explained Ferdinand’s lack of playing time as down to injuries more than anything else. “He's had a few injuries, a few niggles in his calf, but overall Rio's very much a part of it,” the former Everton boss stressed.


The form of the team and the form of some of the young players has meant I've not needed to look to change it around too much,” Moyes continued. “I think the players here all play their part. Rio and Vida have been two of the best centre-halves, certainly in this Premier League generation.


Ferdinand moved to United after the 2002 World Cup, joining from Leeds. In his decade-plus at the club the 35-year-old has claimed six Premier League titles, two League Cups, the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup. He has also made almost 450 appearances for United, scoring eight goals.
