Rio Ferdinand’s playing career is reaching it’s end
Rio Ferdinand initiated his career with West Ham United as the defender made his debut for the English defender at the age of 17. He was later transferred to Bournemouth on a loan deal before being signed by Leeds United for a transfer fee of £18 million.
Ferdinand spent 2 years playing for Leeds United but it was with Manchester United where he truly managed to stand out. The best seasons in the career of Rio Ferdinand was with Manchester United as the player lifted the Premier League on 6 occasions as well as the Champions League silverware and a few other titles along the way.
Only one year after having joined Manchester United and Ferdinand became the captain of the Premier League club as he was becoming one of the finest defenders in Europe.
Those were the best days and years in the career of Rio Ferdinand but things have not been so bright for the experienced defender as he is now playing for the relegation threatened club Queens Park Rangers and is not even a consistent performer for them.
At the time of writing this article, Ferdinand has made 11 Premier League appearances for QPR as he has had to settle with a place on the sidelines of the team for the majority of the season.
In October of 2014, Ferdinand announced his desire to retire and end his playing career which has spanned for over 17 years but his last season is not being spent on a high note as the experienced defender is performing for a club that is located in the bottom spots of the Premier League and struggles to snatch a regular starting position of the manager, Chris Ramsey.
This final season of Rio Ferdinand has fallen short of the expectations of the player as he wanted to conclude his playing career with some glory and majesty but it doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen.
