Rio Ferdinand

  • €80.00


Every great team is built on a bedrock of a solid defensive foundation. It is through a stable centre-back partnership that confidence is transmitted across the team, where they are made to feel more secure to play attacking football. Such a partnership requires intrinsic chemistry between the pair which is rare to find. But with Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidić, there was a perfect balance of calm and chaos, control and aggression.

Ferdinand was the calm figure, a smart ball-playing central defender. A graceful player, who guided attackers away from the danger zone, rarely making a rough challenge. His poise on the ball and efficient distribution of it made him irreplaceable for United. They would go on to record 1,331 minutes without conceding a goal in a 14-game streak that today remains every bit as stunning an achievement as it was at the time.

The artwork highlights Rio’s late winning goal against Swansea securing that the title went to the red side of Manchester once more. Capped 81 times he played at three World Cups for England, but it was at club level where he enjoyed the most success winning six Premier League titles and the Champions League during his 12 seasons at the heart of Manchester United's defence.
