Rio Ferdinand to Return to Upton Park for Mark Noble's West Ham Testimonial

Tom Webb@@tomwebby92UK Staff WriterJanuary 4, 2016

Former West Ham United defender Rio Ferdinand is set to play at Upton Park for one last time, having been asked to take part in Mark Noble's testimonial match.

"Such a special place, special fans," Ferdinand wrote on Twitter on Monday after announcing he had been invited to play in the match between the current West Ham first team and a West Ham All-Stars squad on March 28.

Ferdinand, a product of the West Ham youth system, made 158 appearances for the club before joining Leeds United in 2000.

The match will likely represent his last chance to play at the ground, with the Hammers set to move out of their home of 112 years and into the Olympic Stadium in the summer.
