Ferdinand revels in Turkish loan spell

Bursaspor defender Anton Ferdinand believes more English players should try their luck abroad.

The on-loan QPR centre-back has helped the Turkish side up to fourth spot in the Super Lig since escaping the west London side’s relegation battle.

The 28-year-old told Sky Sports: “I am enjoying it, it’s very different but I have got used to the culture and the way of life over here very quickly.

“Some people like to think that they want to go and play abroad and things like that, but that doesn’t faze me.

“If things are brought to me that I think is a challenge I want to do it and playing abroad is definitely a challenge for anyone.

“I have seen it all my career – people come from abroad to England and how difficult it is for them. I like challenges and this is no different and something I will never regret.”

Ferdinand was named in the Super Lig Team of the Week for two weeks in a row after Bursaspor kept three consecutive clean sheets recently.

He added: “It took a little bit of time for me to get a run in the team because the team were winning games, but I am happy with my performances over the last three games.

“We have got three clean sheets, which is always satisfying for a defender and the first thing you want to do as a defender is keep a clean sheet knowing you have done your job for the team.

“Football is a confidence game and to see myself in the Team of the Week for two weeks running fills me with confidence.

“I wouldn’t rule out a move to Bursaspor. I am a person who just loves to play football and loves the challenge and as long as I am playing I wouldn’t rule out a move to Turkey.

“I am enjoying it and if I am enjoying my football then I am enjoying my life.”
