Rio answers fans' questions

Rio Ferdinand recently took the time to answer a few questions posted by United fans on Talking Reds and the club’s official Facebook page, facebook.com/manchesterunited ...

What’s the most challenging thing about being a player at Manchester United? - Red Devil Mank, Talking Reds

It can take time to get used to the pressure that comes with pulling on the United shirt. I remember when I was at West Ham and we'd go to somewhere like Old Trafford; before the game, we'd be delighted with a draw. But here, even if you’re losing 1-0 with just 10 minutes left, we always think about winning.

Who is the most difficult forward you’ve had to defend against? - Lynette Wilson, Facebook

My former Manchester United team-mate Louis Saha, now at Everton of course. He’s quick, he's strong, hes aggressive, he hits the ball cleanly with both feet, he’s great in the air… if I was building a prototype of a perfect number 9 then I’d look to Louis.

What was said by the boss after the defeat to Barcelona and how do you think we will do this year if we meet them again? - Rob Williams, Talking Reds

We never go into specifics about what Sir Alex says in the dressing room – that just doesn’t happen. But the gist of it was that we had to learn from it and that Barcelona had set a new bar in terms of the level we had to get to and it was now up to us to reach that bar and get beyond it. That’s the goal now.

Are you planning to go to any events at the 2012 Olympics in London? - Muktar Nur, Facebook

I'd love to go to the 100 metres athletics final. It would be great to see Usain Bolt go through the finish line in about 8.5 seconds!

Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have really impressed the fans. How highly do you rate them? - Tom Gittins, Talking Reds
