United - Ferdinand on Fitness Battle!

United - Ferdinand on Fitness Battle!

It`s not been one of the best seasons for Rio Ferdinand when you look back at how many appearances he`s made.

Injury after injury have impeded upon his desire to get back into a pattern whereby playing becomes the natural order of things.

Now though, with the World Cup approaching, Rio is fairly confident that he`s come through the worst of it, explaining,

"It has been a frustrating time but you`ve got to get on with it."

"Hopefully now I`m coming out of the back end of it and, fingers crossed, I will not get any more injuries."


With the 2010 World Cup, in South Africa, getting nearer by the day we`re sure that Fabio Capello will be relieved that his chosen captain is confident his woes are behind him.

Since Capello chose to axe John Terry and replace him with Rio, our central defender has yet to lead England out, due to injuries, but it`s a task he`s looking forward to, commenting

"It`s every kids dream. It`s an incredible honour and I think it will only sink in when the time comes."

We`re sure that Rio fit the role perfectly joining a long line of United players that have captained their countries in international football.

I can just say that I'm glad we signed C.Smalling,his injury problems are not going to get better and we required someone to carry on and young J.Evans has done a fantastic job whenever called on.The present may be Ferdinand-Vidic and this partnership is just excellent whenever present but SAF has secured our future with Smalling and Evans,so as far the defence is concerned it looks really good.Hopefully our Da Silva twins will continue their progress.

We have cover with Brown too, unless they all get injured at the same time. Smalling will take time to settle down, Evans though has proved himself and there a couple of youngsters who i think can cut it at this level!

I dont believe he is over these injuries either. I think he'll manage the injury better but I cant see him playing 40 games a season. We have no problems with defensive cover if most of the team are fit. In fact if everyone is fit we could have a problem. We have 7 guys who can play CB and 6 or 7 who can play RB. The area we have least cover is left back and even there we have Evra, Fabio, Oshea and De Laet.

I agree, wouldn't want Evra burning out on us,his high intensity style of play cannot go on for the whole season!
