Sir Alex Ferguson hopes to be able to call upon Rio Ferdinand for Manchester United’s game against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, since the Scotsman believes the experienced defender’s presence in the fixture would help his side achieve a positive result from it, according to ESPN.
“I’m hoping Rio will be okay for Saturday. When you go to Stoke you need a bit of experience. Rio came into the team when we played at Bolton and gave us that experience, so we hope he’ll be fit for Saturday,” said Ferguson, who will understandably be keen for his side to handle the physicality the Potters possess.
