Rio Ferdinand has added to his money-making schemes with a new restaurant set to open in Manchester, called ‘Rosso’ or ‘Red’ in Italian.

The restaurant is located just off Kings Street in an 114-year-old, Grade II-listed building, with two restored domes, polished-marble columns and walls, delicate stained glass and ornate plaster ceilings.

A spokesperson for Rosso told the Evening News: “It will be a 150-seater Italian restaurant with a large bar area with booths for people to come and meet and have drinks after work. We want it to be a really nice, relaxed place for people to come and dine and it’s not going to be ridiculously expensive, it will be good food at a good price. The restaurant will be called Rosso, which is Italian for red, because it gives it that authenticity, but is also a bit of a nod to Rio too.”

The RoM Manchester United 2021-22 season preview is now available for just £6.
