Rio: I Can See The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Do you remember the last time Rio Ferdinand played for United? It was in the 2-0 defeat at Anfield, almost two months ago. However, he is close to a return, according to himself.

'It's okay - obviously I'd love to be playing now, that's my passion and what I love doing, but I've been injured for a little while now.

'I'm on a good road and hopefully I can see light at the end of the tunnel and it won't be too long.'

'I've had the problem for maybe close to 18 months, and just played on with it and stuff.

'But hopefully we have seen the last of it, fingers crossed.

'I'm getting treatment, I'm working hard in the gym and doing a lot of stuff in the gym to make sure there is no reoccurrence of any problems.'


Lord knows we need a fit and in-form Rio Ferdinand as our defence has been leaky all season, to say the least. It's great that he sees the light at the end of the tunnel, let's hope it's not the train approaching though...

A good performing Ferdinand and Hargo then we will be defensively fine.

I still think a team of VDS, Brown, Rio, Vidic, Valencia, Park, Fletcher and Hargreaves would be almost impenetrable.
