Interview with Rio Ferdinand

This week Rio Ferdinand joined us to talk about his Red's Life:

Journalist: If you weren't a footballer, What job would you be doing now?

Rio: I'd probably be working in the communities in Peckham, where I grew up. I'd be helping out in youth centres or football coaching for kids.

Journalist: What do you say to your team-mates when they scores?

Rio: I can't really say because there are normally swear words involved! Usually it's along the lines of 'well done'.

Journalist: What's it like to walk out at the packed Old Trafford before a big match?

Rio: When you walk out and the crowd's going crazy, it's an amazing feeling - the best.

Journalist: Did you ever imagine captaining United in a Champions League final?

Rio: Never, I thought we'd have a chance of making the final but to lead the side out was like a dream. And to go on and win it and get our hands on the trophy was brilliant.

Journalist: Which team-mates have you played against at international level?

Rio: I've played against Giggsy, Ronaldo and Nani. Ronny's quite competitive and Portugal have been lucky to beat us on penalties twice. He's always got that to throw at us when there are arguments about England and penalties. Next I'd like to play against Sheasy or Fletch.
