Ferdinand is apparently said to have announced his intention during an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, which is set to air on Saturday (Oct 25th).

After spending twelve seasons at Manchester United, he experienced incredible success at the club – a six-time Premier League Champion, one-time UEFA Champions League winner and six-time member of the EPL PFA Team of the Year. He will end his playing career after just one year with QPR.

As always, Manchester United and QPR fans have had their say on Twitter along with football fans in general from around the world. Although not many of them seemed surprised – they thought he had already called it a day.

A third year Journalism student and an aspiring sports journalist. May sound like a cliché but I’d love to turn my passion into a career. I’ve always enjoyed writing and I’m a massive Evertonian, so decided to put the two together and started writing for an Everton website. I’ve always found it easier to write about something that I’m interested in. Oh and I’ve recently picked up an interest in golf, all thanks to Rory McIlroy.
