Ferguson rules out Ferdinand exit

Sir Alex Ferguson has removed any doubts over Rio Ferdinand’s future at Manchester United and believes that he can play for two or three more years, Sky Sports reports.

The 33 year old is reaching the twilight years of his career and it had been reported that he would be sold to make room for younger players such as Chris Smalling and Phil Jones. Ferdinand had also been criticised for some of his performances and the United boss himself stated that his defender had to change the way he played due to his age. Ferguson will not sell the player he paid £30m for and insists that the England international will see out his contract at the club.

Ferdinand performed well against Newcastle and was unlucky to see a penalty awarded against him for a fair challenge on Hatem Ben Arfa. The United boss said: ‘Rio’s been a great player for us and it’s important to explain his present position. I have no issues at all with Rio, he can play for another couple of years quite easily. He’s got a part to play. He’s got experience and he’s a big figure in our dressing room, so that will continue. I have no thoughts of letting him go’.
