We doubt Rio Ferdinand will have any use for his birthday gift from Robbie Savage

Straight onto eBay


It’s Rio Ferdinand’s 37th birthday today.

The former Manchester United defender was on BT Sport show Fletch and Sav, and the presenters kindly marked their guest’s birthday.

But what do you get a millionaire former professional footballer? Well, host Robbie Savage thought it would be hilarious to give Rio a copy of his new autobiography…

Rio called the book a ‘sleeping tablet’, and judging by this extract from the book, he may be right.

“Having shorter hair certainly took some getting used to,” Savage writes. “I got in the shower, reached for the shampoo, and before I knew it, I was done!

“I don’t really follow fashion, I create it.”
