Man Utd defender confident of fitness

Ferdinand has been out of action since October due to a calf injury.

“I’m confident I’ll be fit. There’s no question I’ll be ready for next summer,” said Ferdinand.

Ferdinand admits he is impressed with the performance of midfielders Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher in the Untied defence.

“Michael Carrick’s done a great job filling in at centre-half, so has Darren Fletcher at right-back so I’m glad for them,” he said.

“That’s what Manchester United is all about, it’s all about the team effort.”
