Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand sees his future in management.

He has admitted he is turning his thoughts to the future and wants to be the latest in a long line of Old Trafford stars to go into coaching.

Ferdinand told the Daily Mail: "As the months and years have gone by I think I have come round to the idea of doing some sort of coaching or being a manager.

"Obviously I love football and all the tactics but I also think I would like the day-to-day responsibility of cajoling players and bringing the best out of them. Man-management is so important these days. I think I would love that side of it."
