Fergie: Ferdinand's The Best

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced that he has the best defender in Europe in his ranks in Rio Ferdinand.

After having been forced to sit out United's first two pre-season games due to a troublesome back, Ferdinand looked as composed as ever during the 1-0 victory against South African side Orlando Pirates in the Vodacom Challenge.

Sir Alex was obviously delighted to have his most integral defender back, as evidence by his latest comments on the England star.

"Rio has been the best defender in the country if not Europe for a couple of years," trumpeted Ferguson.

"His maturity and leadership have been key factors in the team's success.

"He is someone that young players learn from and that more experienced players respect.

"I have not seen a better defensive pairing than him and Nemanja for a long time," he added, making sure to give credit to Ferdinand's first-choice defensive partner Vidic as well.

Ferdinand, 29, can consider himself to be very lucky to have escaped disciplinary action from the FA after he reportedly kicked out at a Chelsea steward last season. A suspension would not only have seen him missing the beginning of the Premier League season but could also England’s upcoming friendly against the Czech Republic, which would have seriously dented his hopes of being named as the national team's permanent skipper.
