Ferdinand out for Man Utd festive period

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed Rio Ferdinand would be out for up to 10 days after the England defender withdrew from the squad which won 1-0 at Stoke. Ferdinand pulled out of the game with a back problem.

The United chief told Sky Sports 1: "He'll be out. We have to get to the root of this."

When asked if his captain would be ruled out for a long time, Ferguson added: "Not necessarily; maybe in 10 days he should be okay."
