Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand admits it is strange not being in control of the title heading into the last game of the season.
For the past three seasons, United have had the Premiership wrapped up or they were at least in the driver’s seat but this time around they have to rely on Chelsea getting beaten if they are to lift the trophy.
Ferdinand said it was a strange feeling and is now hoping that Wigan can do the job for United when they face Chelsea on the weekend.
Ferdinand said : “It is very strange. In the last three years we have been in command. Now we have to wait,”.
“It is going to be difficult. We have lost a lot of games this year but we are still in there. Hopefully Wigan will go for it on Sunday and we will hear some positive news.”
Ferdinand added that the 2009/10 season had supplied more twists than ever and said he held hopes that it may continue in the last match and give the Blues a less than positive result.
“It’s been an exciting season. More so-called lesser teams on paper have been taking points off the top four,” he added.
“In previous seasons it’s been a case of the big teams beating all the others and then dropping points against each other. It’s been a weird season. Hopefully that’ll bode well for Chelsea’s game.”
