Rio to wait on future decision

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand admits his fitness will decide whether or not he signs a new deal at Old Trafford

Rio Ferdinand: Boosted by Sir Alex Ferguson's comments

The 34-year-old has struggled with a back problem for the last few years, but the former England international has managed to overcome the injury to play more regularly in the past 18 months.

Ferdinand's current deal expires in the summer and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson recently hinted the defender was in line for a new deal after hailing his form this term.

Former West Ham and Leeds ace Ferdinand admits the praise from Ferguson was a boost, but he wants to see how his body copes with the busy winter programme before making a decision on his long-term future.

"The best thing I can do is to look at it after Christmas, and then again in the summer, to see how I'm feeling and go from there," said Ferdinand. "But hearing the manager saying I could go on for maybe another two or three years definitely puts the spring back in your step.

"I will have a better idea about that in December or January time when the games start coming thick and fast. That is when it really hits you and you know the hard work has to start.

"I will probably then get a better gauge of where I am, fitness-wise, and the benefit of having the summer off then."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
