Since Rio Ferdinand signed a one year deal with QPR, there is a need to answer why they need each other.

Rio Ferdinand

The new QPR defender needs a new start after his less than dignified treatment at Old Trafford last spring. Last season, Ferdinand was prone to injuries and was not selected in matches.

To add insult to injury, Ferdinand was fired by Old Trafford management and was not allowed to say good bye to his team of 12 years. QPR offers the defender a new start at a time when players his age are beginning to show deficiencies in their play.

Ferdinand has connections with QPR with Harry Redknapp who was his manager when the two were at West Ham. His brother played for QPR and there are memories of the times when the defender went to see QPR matches.

At QPR, Ferdinand can finish his career with the dignity he deserves.

The club gains the experience of Ferdinand within one year and can use this to their advantage to win matches and rise in the Premier League standings. He won for Old Trafford trophies such as the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, and Club World Cups.

Ferdinand won the Community Shield five times for Manchester United during his time with the club. QPR receives a player who is disciplined and down to earth as reported by Mirror.

It appears that Ferdinand has found solace in his former club yet it remains to be seen what will transpire this season.
