Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand admits winning the Champions League is a career highlight.

Ferdinand will celebrate his United career with a testimonial next month.

As he embarks on a new era under David Moyes following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, Ferdinand recalled his best moments at United. He said: “Winning the first Premier League trophy, because you think it’s never going to happen.

“The Champions League night was just unbelievable, you don’t think in your wildest dreams that you’re ever going to get your hands on that trophy. To be captain that night was phenomenal, a bonus on top of everything else.

“Probably the manager’s last trophy as well, to be a part of his last championship team is a great thing.”
