Ferdinand set to be fit for clash with Arsenal

Former Manchester United captain Rio Ferdinand has moved quickly to rubbish reports that suggest he will miss out on ‘Super Sunday’ clash with Arsenal due to a concussion injury he picked up during the win over Bolton.

The composed centre-back has struggled with a number of back injuries in recent years and has lost a few yards of pace since signing for the club, from Leeds, back in 2002.

In order to rubbish the stories claiming Rio would be absent for the fixture, the 33-year-old took it to Twitter saying: “Just dispelling the rumours that I’m a doubt for Sunday! Trained with the team as normal since the game Saturday! Coaches ran us hard 2day!” (@rioferdy5)
