Rio Ferdinand Gives A Talk To Oxford University’s Debating Society
Rio Ferdinand did not go to Oxford University to study or sightseeing but to talk to the university’s debating society on Monday night.
Ferdinand, who has become known for his outspoken views since his retirement, had clearly done his research on the university before his talk.
Ferdinand also stopped to have a look at a few of the books in the library, and take a selfie with one lucky student.
The defender started at West Ham before moving on to Manchester United where he made more than 400 appearances and won six Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008, among a host of other trophies.
Ferdinand, Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard have been drafted in by the FA to help the next generation of stars. Former Liverpool captain Carragher is going to watch the England Under 17s in training and help coach Steve Cooper.
Carragher will offer guidance and support to the youngsters this week, culminating in Friday’s clash with Germany at Rotherham.
