New England captain Rio Ferdinand says he's using his former Manchester United teammate Roy Keane as his role-model.

He said: "Roy Keane was a fantastic captain. He led by example and played ever so well, getting marks of seven, eight and nine out of 10 in every game. He was a man amongst men and if questions needed to be answered, he was the first or second person to do that. He was a great captain and symbolic of Manchester United."
