Rio Ferdinand is widely acknowledged as one of the most talented defenders in the world. His success on the pitch has been meteoric—including high drama in the Champions League, a World Cup, and a dramatic Premiership victory. If success on the pitch has kept Ferdinand on the back pages, his off-pitch story has made him a regular on the front pages. Here for the very first time, Ferdinand reveals all about his infamous missed drugs test, the controversies surrounding both his transfers, his supposed reluctance to re-sign for United in 2005, and various sex, driving, and anti-social behaviour scandals. Beyond the soccer, Ferdinand's personal story will fascinate.
