Ferdinand declares himself fit for final

7:30 am on 27 May 2009

The Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has declared himself fit for tomorrow's Champions League European football final against Barcelona.

The England centre back has been troubled by a calf problem and sat out Monday's 1-nil Premier League win at Hull City despite United manager Alex Ferguson saying he wanted him to prove his fitness.

Ferdinand says the injury is fine, he's been training for the last couple of days with the team and feels good.

He says he wouldn't start the game if he wasn't 100 percent fit.
