Defender Rio Ferdinand has insisted that he is still happy at Queens Park Rangers despite his recent lack of first-team action, Sky
The former England captain moved to Loftus Road in the summer after his contract ran out at Manchester United. He had spent 12 years with the Red Devils, winning six Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Champions League among other trophies, but the club opted against keeping him for this season.
Ferdinand began his QPR career as a regular in the team alongside Steven Caulker at centre-back, but concerns about his fitness as well as a three-match ban for comments he made on social media have meant that he has not featured for Harry Redknapp’s men since the 2-0 loss at West Ham United on October 5.
But the 36-year-old is adamant that has not harmed his desire to do well for QPR. He said: “No footballer worth his salt likes sitting on the bench. So I would be lying if I said I’m perfectly OK about being left out of the QPR team recently.
“When you have enjoyed all the success of being at a club as big as Manchester United for more than a decade, there is no hiding the fact that my current circumstances are a bit of a comedown. But do not make the mistake of thinking I have any regrets about my move to Loftus Road – because I don’t.’
