Senior service suits Ferdinand

Published Add your comment

Rio Ferdinand is relaxed about his status as one of Manchester United's elder statesmen.

Whereas manager Sir Alex Ferguson used to concentrate on the remaining members of the famed 'Class of 92' when underlining the drive required to be successful over an extended period of time, he has now inserted Ferdinand's name into the list. Were it not for the feats of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, Ferdinand's medal collection would be among the most glittering the game has ever seen.

Now that experience is not only being used on the field, it is also coming in handy off it as Ferdinand helps mastermind another championship tilt. "It is inevitable when you get to a certain stage in your career, you get looked upon as one of the senior players," Ferdinand, 34, said.
