Man Utd boss Ferguson: Ferdinand deserves England captaincy

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes Rio Ferdinand can be the next captain of England.

He said: "Rio has captained us a few times this season and experience is important in that role. Rio has more than 50 caps.

"John Terry has the position so I don't think Rio will be looking at it as the be all and end all. If it happens, I think he will be happy.

"He wouldn't have captained my side if he wasn't capable of captaining England."
