United's Rio Ferdinand Optomistic

Manchester United veteran, Rio Ferdinand has already won five Premier League titles with the Red Devils. And he is eager to win another this campaign.

Rio Ferdinand remained optomistic after Manchester City's victory over Chelsea on Wednesday that left Manchester United only one point clear of their Manchester arch-rivals at the top of the Premier League in this season's exciting race for Premiership silverware.

"We're in the position at the minute that we want to be," said Ferdinand.

"We want to be top at this stage of the season, but more importantly we want to remain there until the end of the season.

"I think this is a vital period, each game is a must-win game. At the moment, if we win all of our remaining games until the end of the season, we will be champions. That's what we're going out to do.

"We've left ourselves in a position where we are going to be a couple of points behind or on top. Right now we are top and we have got to finish it off."

"There is no better feeling at the end of the season than sitting there and knowing you have got a winners' medal hanging around your neck," he added.

"Those are the memories that you think about and drive you on to achieve things and try to be a part of this club's history."
