Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has plans to enter coaching.

The Daily Mail says the 35-year-old is ready to leave United at the end of the season but is considering retiring from playing and concentrate on getting his coaching badges.

He began his courses more than three years ago but had to stop when a back injury needed his full attention.

He has picked up where he left off this season and intends to gain the first stage of his qualifications by the summer when he is also likely to begin TV work helping with coverage of the World Cup.
