Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has just announced his entry into management.
Rio Ferdinand made his debut for West Ham United in 1996. He joined Leeds United in a record move four years later, and broke another record by moving to Manchester United in 2002, before finally joining Queens Park Rangers and then retiring last year. Nowadays, Rio Ferdinand is seen expressing his footballing opinions on BT Sport as a Pundit.
On several occasions, Rio Ferdinand has accused Louis van Gaal of making Manchester United’s style boring.
The Dutchman’s future is uncertain at the United helm as the Red Devils sit in sixth with eight games to go in the Premier League, and their Europa League exit at the hands of Liverpool means the side will have to face domestic challenge for Champions League qualification.
It is believed that Jose Mourinho already has a gentleman’s agreement with the United board to replace Louis van Gaal.
But there’s a new twist in the ‘next Manchester United manager’ story.
It seems Rio Ferdinand’s expert opinions in the BT Sport TV studio have impressed the United board, and they have decided to snub Jose Mourinho and Ryan Giggs in order to give Rio the charge of Manchester United management.
Rio Ferdinand announced the surprising news on his twitter account.

‘New Chapter.. Contract signed.. Looking forward to going into management in June. Big summer ahead!’ Ferdinand tweeted.
Manchester United fans are already worried about their club’s future and are unclear about their next manager, and it is annoying to see a new candidate emerging for the United job everyday. Hopefully, Rio Ferdinand is serious with his latest tweet.
By the way, just wondering, what’s the date today?
