Pallister: Man Utd's Ferdinand has no equal

Former Manchester United defender Gary Pallister says Rio Ferdinand has no equal.

"When Rio is at his best, there is no finer defender in Europe," said former United centre-back Pallister.

"He has pace, is composed and uses the ball intelligently.

"We all know he had a difficult time with his contract negotiations and before that the missed drugs test. But these are the kind of events that make you stronger and Rio is now fulfilling all the potential people knew he had."
