David Moyes has branded speculation that Rio Ferdinand would not go on Manchester United’s winter break to Dubai and would quit at the end of the season as “complete nonsense”.
It had been claimed Ferdinand, an unused substitute in Sunday’s Premier League draw with Fulham at Old Trafford, would miss the short warm weather training camp.

In addition, it was suggested the club would confirm on Thursday that Ferdinand would be retiring at the end of the season.
However, Moyes said such claims were untrue.
“I can only tell you what was written was a load of rubbish,” said Moyes.
