One of the most decorated English footballers of the modern era, Rio Ferdinand has certainly had a career to be proud of so far.

Having made his Premier League debut 17 years ago, the classy centre-back has gone on to make over 400 Premier League appearances for West Ham, Leeds and Manchester United.

His move to Old Trafford for an initial fee of £29.1m in 2002 saw him become the most expensive defender in world football for a second time, a title he held until Thiago Silva's move to Paris St Germain in 2012.

Having spent over a decade at the Theatre of Dreams, Ferdinand is likely to be a key figure as David Moyes' aims to prove there's life after Sir Alex Ferguson.

On the back of another fine season for the experienced defender, we take a look at some of the highlights of 2012/13.
