'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Ferdinand`s Two Loves!

Great minds think alike!

Well that`s what I`d like to think although several, no probably thousands out there, might think differently.

But as a proud Englishman I`ve never understood why some footballers want to retire from international football, after all is it not the pinnacle of your career?

In the United squad, both Paul Scholes and Wes Brown have opted out of representing their country but it doesn`t appear to be something that Rio Ferdinand would even consider.

Addressing the media hacks on the eve of the European Championship qualifier against Montenegro, Rio emphasised just how much playing for England (and Manchester United) means, remarking,

"You can`t retire from England. I can`t."

"You have to respect other people`s decisions but I actually love playing for England."

"To stop doing so would be taking a big chunk out of my footballing life."

"I love playing for Manchester United and thankful for that every morning when I wake up. But I love playing for England too. Unless I am physically incapable of doing it, giving it up is something I wouldn`t consider."


Like I said, great mind think alike!

Hopefully his love for Man U is greater than that for England.
