Man Utd defender Ferdinand: Ferguson determination eventually rubs off on players

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says manager Sir Alex Ferguson's determination rubs off on his players.

The centre-back reckons the ­determination to keep on winning comes from Fergie.

He said: "Maybe experience and the ­desire comes from the manager.

"He has been here for 25 years but still wants to win, so why can't ­people who have been here 10, five, two years, one year be the same?

"They have got to have the same belief and fire in their belly to want to achieve that too.

"There is no better feeling at the end of the season than sitting there knowing you've got a winners' medal around your neck.

"This is what drives you on to be a part of this club's history."
