LONDON - Rio Ferdinand has signed a one-year contract extension with Manchester United, the Premier League champions announced on Thursday. The 34-year-old centre-back announced his retirement from international football last week and says he is eager to start work with new manager David Moyes. "I am delighted to have signed for another year and I am looking forward to working with the new manager," said Ferdinand. "Who wouldn't want to play in this fantastic team in front of 75,000 fans each week? It has been an incredible journey and I am glad it will continue. I can now fully concentrate on my club career, which has worked well for me over the past few years. This is a great team to be part of and we are now moving into a new era with the club, which is very exciting." –AFP
