Ferdinand not content with trophy haul

Published Add your comment

The day Rio Ferdinand is content with his trophy haul is the day he will decide to retire.

Ferdinand freely admits he spent last week badgering Sir Alex Ferguson to play in Sunday's Carling Cup Final despite not featuring in a minute of United's run to Wembley.

"It is great to win what we have over the past 12 months but if we finish the season just winning the Carling Cup I would be disappointed," he said.

The defender clearly has a persuasive tongue as Ferguson relented and was rewarded with a superb performance in the triumph over Tottenham which gave United the second trophy in what they hope will be an unprecedented quintuple.

While not quite up to the levels of Ryan Giggs, who has moved on to a record 19 major medals, Ferdinand has a pretty impressive six, with a lucky seventh seemingly certain to arrive in the Premier League before the campaign reaches its conclusion.

Yet the 30-year-old is not satisfied, either with this season's efforts or his overall collection. He has been that way ever since he was a kid at West Ham. And he cannot see it ever changing.

He continued: "That is not to undermine the competition. When I have finished my career it will be added to the lots of trophies I have won.

"We want to try and achieve more and win more trophies."
