Ferdinand: I'd hate to face Man Utd attack

Rio Ferdinand says he'll never leave Manchester United - for fear of facing their attack as an opponent.

He said: "I'd never leave this club to go anywhere where I might have to play against those two! No chance.

"I play against them enough in training. Carlos is similar to Rooney in that he's not afraid to make a tackle and they work hard for the team.

"Carlos gets in the holes between midfield and defence.

"If he can keep doing that and slipping the ball through to Wayne, they'll become a formidable pairing.

"Physically, Louis is a great specimen. His movement, when he is fit, is probably the best in the world.

"If you add Louis to that pair, then we've got something really special when we get them all fit.

"And Ronaldo's movement was the best I've seen for a long time. We know we've got a great player on our hands already. "And if he can keep improving, then great. They all offer different propositions.

"If we can keep winning and improving, then we're on the right track."
