Rio Ferdinand has laughed off claims from the precious Cristiano Ronaldo that:
“At Manchester United I won the Champions League and I didn’t speak with [Rio] Ferdinand, [Ryan] Giggs or [Paul] Scholes. We said hello to each other and that was it,”
The former Leeds United centre-back then went on to list several incidences that disprove Ronaldo’s claims that he, Rio, Scholesy and Giggs weren’t the bestest buds in the whole wide world.
Rio recalls a moment where he offered CR7 his last rolo: “I was walking across the car park after a gruelling training session, when Ronny came jogging over in a white jumpsuit. I thought I’d be an absolute chap and offered the bronzed git my last rolo; he then proceeded to do keep-ups with it before catching it in his mouth. I want that rolo back now”
“We’d spend hours playing FIFA together, although it was tedious at the beginning as I had to wait for Ronaldo to recreate himself 17 times on the game, as he insisted on playing with an 18-man squad just made up of himself”
“Whenever I popped to the local shops, I always made a point of asking Ronaldo, as he was my neighbour, if he needed anything. The amount of times I felt like a muppet buying face packs and fake tan for that princess.”
“I remember that Ronaldo pulled this practical joke on Sir Alex, where he replaced all the gaffer’s black socks with brown ones – yeah, the Portuguese really don’t have a good sense of humour. Fergie was fuming and Ronaldo was shitting himself, so I took the blame for it. Wish I had squealed the prick up, now”.
