Rio Ferdinand first tweeted: “Anyone fancy a Question+Answer session in 30mins? Tweet me a question with #rioQ+A attached + I'll do my best to answer as many as possible!”
Knowing how admired the Manchester United defender is, there was always a chance that his fans would smash his page with a pile of questions.
The result of the session wasn’t bad, anyway. Ferdinand received over 20 questions to answer and the information he gave out wasn’t less than interesting.
Asked who were the best players he had ever played with and against, Ferdinand answered: “with: Ronaldo, Giggs, Scholes. Against: Raul, Messi, Zidane”
He also revealed that he once got Coach Ferguson’s hairdryer, adding that “my hair dried instantly!”
The English international showed no sign of secrecy when it came to naming the footballers he enjoyed watching the most: “Messi, Ronaldo, Iniesta + any young players coming through,” he tweeted.
Other information picked up from the Q & A session on Twitter revealed that, while England’s 5-1 win over Germany remains one of his most memorable games for England, his best goal scored at club level is without doubt the one he netted against Liverpool FC in 2006.
He also declared that the top 2003 comedy-drama animated film Finding Nemo was currently one of his favourite cartoons, along with Shrek and Peppa Pig.
