Ferdinand said: "He's a great player. He's a real player's player. Any player that plays with him and against him, they'd all have him in their top 2 or 3 players that ever they've played against and all the great players in the world you hear that have played against him, speak about him always say that, so that speaks volumes of what he is.
"He's a true professional like many other players we've got at this club and that what inspires a lot of the young lads coming through and the players currently playing in the first team."
