Rio Ferdinand believes Arjen Robben chose a move to Chelsea over Manchester United in part because of the 'smell' of the Carrington training ground.

Speaking about his time as a player during an Instagram Q&A, Ferdinand opened up on his admiration of Robben, who was a central figure in a Chelsea side that won two Premier League titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup under Jose Mourinho.



He walked around and didn't like the smell and walked off and went Chelsea.



Robben played 106 times for Chelsea after joining from PSV Eindhoven for £12million in 2004, scoring 19 goals and providing 22 assists for Mourinho's first major Chelsea side.

Despite his praise for Robben, Ferdinand still believes that Ryan Giggs was better than him in his prime.

Robben departed Chelsea in 2008 for Real Madrid, spending two years in Spain before moving on to a trophy-laden tenure with Bayern Munich in Germany.

In July 2019, after 309 games and 144 goals for Bayern, Robben announced his retirement from football.
