Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed defender Rio Ferdinand will make his Manchester United comeback against Hull at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The 30-year-old has not featured since the defeat at Liverpool on October 25, since when he has been absent with a long-standing back complaint. But his condition has improved markedly over the last three weeks and Ferguson believes it is time the former West Ham star re-entered the fray.

Ferguson said: "Rio has been training very well in the last few weeks. He will play."
