“[Me and Les] were similar, we both loved crosses coming into the box and with the wingers that we had, with [Keith] Gillespie, [David] Ginola and Peter Beardsley, our Newcastle side was a very attacking team." - Alan Shearer
Ferdinand was the second player to score 100 Premier League goals, after Alan Shearer, reaching the tally in May 1997.
Ferdinand scored 149 Premier League goals for six different clubs. Only Craig Bellamy has scored for more different teams in Premier League history (7).
He is one of only five players to have scored a hat-trick for three different Premier League teams, doing so for QPR, Newcastle and Spurs.
