Ferdinand intent on leaving Man Utd on a 'high note'

When Rio Ferdinand's career does finally finish, the defender wants to make sure he leaves Manchester United on a winning note.

The 33-year old centre-back has another year on his current deal, and insists he wants to play on after that, but nevertheless, he wants to ensure that whenever he does end his playing days that it's positive.

"There are not many players who leave this club doing exactly what they want to do," he said.

"It wouldn't be good finishing your career with a loss, or by not winning something.

"The losses now do my head in. To think I wouldn't be able to rectify it the season after because I had retired or left would rankle.

"I am not thinking about retirement. I am trying to play as long as I can. I have another year after this and I want to do another 10.

"But whenever it is, I would want to go out on a high note."
