Rio Ferdinand leaves #MUFC

By Staff Reporter

#MUFC moves on.

Below is the full statement that was released following @rioferd’s decision to quit #Manchester United , a club he has tirelessly worked for and loved in the last 12 years. What a gallant servant he has been 

…an unbelievable 12 years that…

“I have thought long and hard over the last few months about my future, and after 12 fantastic years playing, for what I regard, as the best club in the world, I have decided the time is right for me to move on.

I joined Manchester United in the hope of winning trophies, and never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined how successful we would be during my time here. There have been so many highlights, playing alongside some great players who have become good friends, winning my first Premier League title and also that fantastic night in Moscow are memories that I will cherish forever.

Very few football players could present such passion for #MUFC. Rio Ferdinand has been a reliable servant for the team

Circumstances didn’t allow for me to say goodbye the way I would have liked but I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my teammates, staff, the club & the fans for an unbelievable 12 yrs that I’ll never forget. Winning trophies I dreamed about as a kid came true at this great club.

I am feeling fit and healthy, ready for a new challenge and looking forward to whatever the future holds for me”



Well done Rio!!
