Another Rio Poser?

Another Rio Poser?

It`s not been too long since doubts were cast, by several parties, about the future of Rio Ferdinand.

Many pundits suspected that Ryan might be leaving Old Trafford this summer to seek one last challenge.

But comments, attributed to Sir Alex Ferguson, don`t support that with the boss talking about Rio staying with us for another two years, commenting in the media,

"I`ve got no thoughts of letting Rio go."

"He`s got a big part to play. He`s got experience and he`s a big figure in our dressing room."

"The players look up to him, so that will continue. He can play for another couple of years quite easily."

"We`ve built the team for the day that Gary Neville left and Rio left, it`s a fact. We have to look ahead and there`s nothing wrong with that. But it shouldn`t mean that Rio looks upon it as the end of his football life."

"He has been such a good player for us that it was important for me to explain his position. The fact is he`s not as quick as he was five years ago."

"That happens. People lose their pace. But he`s adjusted his game and he`s had terrific performances since then."


All quite simple until you realise that those two years he mentions don`t exactly categorically state they`ll be with United!

Rio will stay until the end of his contract solely because of everything he offers. Like Fergie said he's not the defender he once was but still a fantastic defender anyway and still better than most. He helps the youngsters a lot and his experience is invaluable. I can see the day we decide we no longer need him, possibly at the end of his current contract, he will hang up his boots and go out on top like Scholes and Neville before him.
