Anton Ferdinand denies Police United link
English defender Anton Ferdinand has denied claims that he has signed on to play for Police United in the Thai Premier League.
Ferdinand, the younger brother of former Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand signed on a three year contract to play for Turkish club Antalyaspor last August but he just managed a handful of appearances for the Turkish club as they were relegated from the top flight at the end of the season.
Amid several reports suggesting that the former West Ham United and Queens Park Rangers defender had terminated his contract with his Turkish club to play in Asia, Anton posted a series of tweets on his official account on Twitter where he denied any agreement between him and Police United.
Anton Ferdinand wrote that he wanted to clarify that he hasn’t signed on to play for any team for the new season and he is keeping all his options open and his passport on hand.
In the next tweet, he teased fans by saying that he might just not need the passport as well.
Police United is one of the more popular teams in the Thai Premier League that runs through the summer; the club currently stands at 13th place in a league of twenty teams.
Ferdinand, who made over one hundred appearances for West Ham United between 2003 and 2008 also had a brief spell at Sunderland before moving to Queens Park Rangers when they won promotion to the Premier League.
His stint with the club was controversial after becoming involved in an incident where former England skipper John Terry racially abused him that caused quite a media storm, following which Terry retired from international football.
Anton Ferdinand left QPR for Turkey after the club was relegated at the end of the previous season in England.
