Rio Ferdinand reveals that he plans to retire from football at the end of this season with Queens Park Rangers.

Queens Park Rangers defender Rio Ferdinand has revealed that he will "probably" retire from professional football at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old, who moved to Loftus Road in the summer following a 12-year spell at Manchester United, will be a free agent at the end of the current campaign.

According to The Metro, when asked when he will hang up his boots, Ferdinand said: "I probably think the end of this season. I'm not fearful of retirement, I'm looking forward to it, I can see some good stuff hopefully happening ahead.

"You get to a time where you start understanding your body and the strains playing football puts your body through, going out and training every day."

Ferdinand has also revealed that he will do a "bit more" punditry duties following his stint with the BBC at the World Cup in Brazil.
