Rio Ferdinand confessed that he had wanted to leave Manchester United for Arsenal in the past.
Ferdinand is a legend who has played for 12 years in Manchester United’s uniform since 2004. Despite his tall height of 192cm, he was able to keep Manchester United’s back with fast feet and a good passing. In particular, Nemanja Vidic formed a solid center-back line that could be called the “Wailing Wall,” giving nightmares to other teams. Ferdinand won six Premier League titles (2002-03, 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09, 2010-11, 2012-13) and one UEFA Champions League (UCL) title (2007-08).
However, as he grew older and became less capable, Ferdinand had no choice but to leave Manchester United. Ferdinand moved to Queens Park Rangers in 2014 and retired from active duty after playing only one season. Since then, he has been a football commentator for BBC.
Ferdinand also sought to transfer United’s rival team Arsenal before moving to QPR. “I even thought about moving to Arsenal,” he said on his YouTube channel on Wednesday. When I left United, I saw Archen Wenger at the hotel. I then approached Wenger and said, ‘I’m leaving United. You can go to Arsenal to help with the locker room if you want. I think you need me in that part.’ I explained that I would go for the locker room culture 토토사이트
There was Wenger’s refusal to go to Arsenal. Ferdinand said, “He didn’t accept my offer. It was the right choice because the performance in QPR was not up to par. But you’re right to think you can help him in the locker room. “It’s because there’s a lot of culture,” he added.
