Kane Ferdinand: Hoping family advice will help to take him to the top

Kane Ferdinand: Hoping family advice will help to take him to the top

The 20-year-old midfielder admits that he has sought advice from family members during the early stages of his career, with Rio, Anton and Les only too happy to help.

Ferdinand appears to be on course to hit his target, with a summer move to London Road taking him to the Championship from League Two Southend United.

He netted his first goal for Peterborough in a crucial 1-0 victory over Blackpool on Saturday and hopes there will be many more to come.

The Republic of Ireland U21 international appreciates that he still has much to learn, but feels he can continue to progress by listening to those around him.

"It was great to get my first goal for the club but I don't think they'll make a big deal of it," Ferdinand said on the response he is likely to get to his landmark strike for the Posh.

"I might get a 'well done' text but I doubt it.

"I've always listened to their advice and tried to take tips off them. They have been top players and it's important to watch the best and add bits to your own game.

"Hopefully, one day I'll be playing on the big stage, too."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
