London, Mar 5(ANI): England skipper Rio Ferdinand hopes to get his career back on track on Saturday, as he resumes his club duties with Manchester United.

Ferdinand has declared himself free of back injury, which had cast a shadow over his preparations for this summer's World Cup finals, and will play in the Premier League game against Wolves.

He was due to return to action against West Ham two weeks ago, but he felt a twinge in his back, which also ruled him out of the Carling Cup final and England's win over Egypt.

"This latest problem has only been a minor setback. It's just been precautionary, me not playing, to make sure it doesn't get any worse. But I'm fine now, no pain, so I'm cool," The Sun quoted Ferdinand, as saying.

"It was decided it was best for me to stay in Manchester and train, rather than with England," he added.

The 31-year-old had earlier said that he would get "very disappointed" if his team does not make it to the World Cup final.

"You don't play just to get a cap or to be there. You play to win and to achieve something, and if I was to finish my career with England and not even to have got to a final, I'd be very disappointed," Ferdinand had said. (ANI)
