Ferdinand: I Want To Be England Manager

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has revealed he wants to manage the England national team in the future.

The 36-year-old has started his coaching education and said that he wants to become a great manager once his coaching badges are completed.

“Everyone has dreams of playing for England and my dream after football is to manage England,” he revealed. 

“I don’t expect the chance now, but once I get the badges I am there. If I don’t get a job in management I will wonder why.”

“I will give myself the best opportunity of getting the job by getting all the badges.

“I don’t think people should start shouting the odds about the opportunity to manage clubs until they have their badges. I am not sitting here saying ‘give me a job’ because I don’t have them yet.”

Ferdinand is currently on the UEFA B licence and the next step is the A licence and then the ProLicence. He says he wants to follow the pathway of young coaches like Joachim Low, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola.

“Low, Klinsmann were young geezers when they started out with Germany,” he added.

“Look at Van Basten, Mourinho, Guardiola and Luis Enrique — they are not old fellas but they were given a chance.

“It is different in this country. We are 10 years behind in certain situations. We have to do what’s best for English football.”

Ferdinand has won 81 caps for his country and has recently signed for Queens Park Rangers.
