Rio Ferdinand is a player I was happy to slate a few years back. He seemed to represent too many of the bad things about football and I felt little to no affiliation with him. Sure, he played for United and was a good enough defender, but his attitude was all wrong.
My opinion has changed massively over the past few years though, with Rio clearly growing up and giving a better account of himself.
Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole are executive producers for a gangsta movie starring Danny Dyer. You could not make this shit up!
Rapper 50 Cent also plays a part, with the plot hanging around Dyer’s character trying to get his hands on £100,000 to repay loan shark Fiddy.
Filming has alread begun in Manchester and London.
Oh dear God.
