Ferguson backs Ferdinand for Euros

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has backed Rio Ferdinand for Euro 2012 selection.

New England boss Roy Hodgson has stated his intention to speak with Ferdinand to see whether he would be willing to play alongside John Terry in Poland and Ukraine. The early indications are that Ferdinand would accept, while the central defender's long-standing back problems appear to have been overcome.

Ferguson said: "He has done fantastic this season. There was a period where I played him in three games in seven days from the end of January but apart from that it has been every seven days. He has coped very well and has had a fantastic season."
