Fergie keen for Ferdinand to stay

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to offer Rio Ferdinand a one-year contract extension after resolving his communication breakdown with the Manchester United defender.

Ferguson was furious with Ferdinand on Saturday when the 33-year-old defied his order to wear a T-shirt backing the Kick It Out anti-racism campaign. However, the pair held clear-the-air talks at United's Carrington training HQ on Sunday, during which Ferdinand put forward a "compelling argument" for why he adopted his solo stance.

With their respective positions now aired, the United boss is more than happy to concentrate on Ferdinand's attributes on the field. "Rio can play for two or three years," he said.
