Manchester United Defender Rio Ferdinand Might Play in Foreign Land Next Season

By on

Longtime Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is considering the possibility of leaving the Reds for a chance to play in foreign land, the Man City legend told Jamie Jackson of the Guardian.

Ferdinand, who played for the Reds since he arrived in 2002, will consider offers from multiple teams - including Al Gharafa, Los Angeles Galaxy, Besiktas and Galatasaray.

However, Ferdinand insisted that he still loves to play more seasons for Manchester United, which has option to extend his deal by one more year.

"But that's down to us as players. We take responsibility for that as much as anyone else. We are where we are and we have to take some responsibility for that. We are not shirkers and we are not people who don't take responsibility. I don't think you get to where we have got to in our careers without taking responsibility and this is no different."
