Ferdinand eyes Spurs return

26 Aug 2009 - 08:40:35

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has pencilled in the Tottenham Hotspur game on September 12 for his return from injury.

Ferdinand, 30, was expected to miss the next four weeks with a thigh muscle problem.

He will miss England's friendly against Slovenia on September 5 and then the World Cup qualifier against Croatia four days later,

But Ferdinand believes he will be ready to return to action immediately after the international break.

"Hopefully the match after the internationals I will be fit so that's what I'm aiming for," he said.

"I've been training really hard the last few days. I'm not where I want to be obviously on the pitch, but in a couple of weeks I'll be back on the pitch playing again."

Ferdinand has not made a Premier League appearance for the champions this season.

He picked up his latest injury problem during training in the build-up to their season-opening 1-0 win over Birmingham City.
