Rio Ferdinand is the latest person to advise Wayne Rooney to reconsider any thoughts he is having of leaving Manchester United.

Yesterday both Bryan Robson and Andy Cole told Rooney that the only way is down after leaving United, and Ferdinand has echoed their words.

Ferdinand revealed that he has received a number of offers in his 11 year spell at United, but pointed to Cristiano Ronaldo as an example of the grass not always being greener.

In his four year spell at Madrid, Ronado has won the La Liga and Copa Del Rey where as United have won 2 Premier League titles, a League Cup and reached the final of the Champions League thus Ferdinand believes there is no better place to win trophies:

“I don’t see where you go better from here.

“For instance, Cristiano has been ridiculous as a football player individually, but has he won more trophies since leaving than what we’ve won? That’s the way I look at it. I wouldn’t say that he shouldn’t have gone there; it was his dream to go there, so you have to respect that. But I just look at things in a black and white way: I want to win trophies so why would I leave here?

“Who am I going to go to who is going to win more trophies than us? Obviously you could say that Barcelona have won more trophies but I’m in my country where I’m from, and you’re proud when you win the league in your country.

“I’ve had loads of offers over the years to go to other football clubs but I’ve never really wanted to go anywhere. I came to Man United for one simple reason and that was to win trophies, so I could retire and say how many trophies I’ve won and look back and say I’ve made a success of my career. That’s all you do, and I’m sure most young players, or players in their prime, when they’re asked to come to Manchester United, that should be the question they ask themselves: ‘Have I got a chance to win?’ Do you want to be part of that history of the club? Normally the answer is yes.”
