  • Ferdinand had enjoyed a great world cup, being named in the team of the tournament and having let Jaap Stam go to Lazio United were in serious need of a new centre back
  • I had never been that impressed with him at West Ham, but during this summer he was starting to appeal more and more to me
  • The problem with being a centre back that is sold or purchased for a record amount is then trying to justify that tag
  • There is no doubt that he has always been a confident lad and this helps you to succeed at a place like Manchester United, though his biggest mistake was to forget to attend a drug test which cost him a 7 month ban and with it went Uniteds hopes of a league title that season

      Rio Ferdinand, not many players have been transferred from Leeds United to Manchester United over the years but Rio Ferdinand was certainly a big one. He was their record signing and was now going to be Manchester United record signing. Ferdinand had enjoyed a great world cup, being named in the team of the tournament and having let Jaap Stam go to Lazio United were in serious

      need of a new centre back.

      Before the world cup I had never been too sure of his ability to defend at the highest level. I had never been that impressed with him at West Ham, but during this summer he was starting to appeal more and more to me.

      The problem with being a centre back that is sold or purchased for a record amount is then trying to justify that tag. A striker scores goals and can make an immediate impact but a defender is not really able to do the same and in his early days it was as though Ferdinand was trying too hard.

      In his first season though this seemed to pass and it was almost as though people forgot that he was a new signing, he settled in way, United went ...

      on to win trophies again and suddenly Ferdinand was the bed rock of most of United success.

      There is no doubt that he has always been a confident lad and this helps you to succeed at a place like Manchester United, though his biggest mistake was to forget to attend a drug test which cost him a 7 month ban and with it went Uniteds hopes of a

      league title that season.

      The team showed signs of weakness and after several years they finally managed to get back to the top of the league. Who knows what United might have been achieved in these emptier years if he had attended this drug test on time.

      He has developed into a great player though and one that im delighted has been a Manchester United player for so long.
