Rio Ferdinand has revealed that the last few weeks of last season left him having sleepless nights.
“At first it was one of those things you couldn’t get out of your mind,” he told MUTV. “For the first couple of weeks you’re waking up in the middle of the night thinking about what happened and how it could have ended differently. You don’t get over it but you put it to the back of your mind for the few weeks after that. It’s hard, though, because you’ve always got people reminding you about it, whether it’s fans of different teams or fans of United. But you use that as inspiration for the following season.”
