Rio to return to West Ham - as coach?

Former Hammer Rio Ferdinand has offered his services to West Ham after the club's latest Premier League humbling.

Having conceded three against Tottenham and then four against Manchester United, the Hammers went one better on Saturday by conceding FIVE at home to Arsenal.

And that shambolic recent run of form has prompted former Hammer Ferdinand to offer to assist the club's coaching team.

"There is no life, no passion," said the Peckham-born defender, who recently retired as a professional. "It was one of the weakest West Ham teams in recent years.

"It could have been a lot worse, they need to have a look at themselves for some of that defending at the end."

Ferdinand is a former team mate of current Hammers boss Slaven Bilic, who nurtured the then precocious teenager through his opening Premier League matches when they featured in Harry Redknapp's side together during the mid-to-late nineties.
