Goodbye Ferdinand

Just as Vidic who will be leaving Manchester United for Inter Milan next season, Rio Ferdinand will also be moving on.

While it is true that Ferdinand's performance this season has been below par, it is important to recognize the contribution, loyalty and passion Ferdinand bring into the game. 

Ferdinand, a legend at United
It is true that perhaps the best of Ferdinand is in the past but his experience has always play an important part in United's game.

Here is an open letter from Ferdinand...

An unbelievable 12 years...

“I have thought long and hard over the last few months about my future, and after 12 fantastic years playing, for what I regard, as the best club in the world, I have decided the time is right for me to move on.

I joined Manchester United in the hope of winning trophies, and never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined how successful we would be during my time here. There have been so many highlights, playing alongside some great players who have become good friends, winning my first Premier League title and also that fantastic night in Moscow are memories that I will cherish forever.

Circumstances didn’t allow for me to say goodbye the way I would have liked but I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my teammates, staff, the club & the fans for an unbelievable 12 yrs that I’ll never forget. Winning trophies I dreamed about as a kid came true at this great club.

I am feeling fit and healthy, ready for a new challenge and looking forward to whatever the future holds for me”


Ferdinand will always be missed at United but it is time to move on. Hopefully, the lads such as Jones, Evans and Smalling will pick themselves up for the coming season.

All the best to a United legend. Ferdinand, a great player, that will always be part of Manchester United...
