Fame and fortune is boring: Rio Ferdinand

Posted By: Staff

London, Mar 26: Rio Ferdinand, the Manchester United and England star said that though he is a millionaire, he finds fame and fortune boring, and prefers slippers and Corrie to a night of partying.

England hero Rio, 30, who rakes in 120,000 pounds a week, said: "People have a vision of what footballers do in their spare time and it's nothing like that. I'm not in nightclubs every night, that's for sure.

"I spend a lot of time looking after my two boys Lorenz and Tate, who was only born in Aug. I also spend a lot of time listening to music and watching Corrie and EastEnders. That's all I do," said the leading England football player.

"People think footballers have a flash lifestyle. But most of the top players at the top teams haven't got the time to be going on the red carpet for new movies and big fancy nightclubs. Our lives are quite boring compared to what people expect," he added.

Rio is also spending time planning his wedding to fiancie Rebecca Ellison, 29. They are expected to tie the knot in Aug.
