Ferdinand grateful to former Man Utd boss Ferguson

Rio Ferdinand says he owes his career to former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferdinand announced his retirement yesterday.

Ferdinand, 36, thanked his former managers, team-mates and supporters but reserved special praise for Ferguson, his boss during a trophy-laden 12-year spell at United.

He said: "Nothing would have been possible without the genius of one man - Sir Alex. He developed us as men, not just footballers."

Ferdinand said it was the "right time" to retire in a statement issued on Saturday.
