Man Utd's Ferdinand could make Chelsea clash

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand could make their massive clash at Chelsea.

The Daily Star says United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled his England centre-back out of tomorrow’s Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow.

Ferdinand, whose form has been questioned this season, has been hampered by a succession of injuries since developing a back problem last December.

Reports yesterday suggested the 30-year-old could need up to eight weeks’ rest.

But Ferdinand recently said his back was no longer an issue and Ferguson claimed his £30m centre-half had a calf injury.
