Rio backing former teammate to win football’s top individual honour.
Rio Ferdinand is so adamant that former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo will win the Ballon d’Or, he has promised to ‘run down the street butt naked’ if the Portuguese is pipped to the award by either Lionel Messi or Franck Ribery tonight.
The Manchester United defender, who played with Ronaldo at Old Trafford, and recently admitted he is still in touch with the Real Madrid star, made the promise on twitter and it has already earned over 9,000 retweets, which suggests Ferdinand will have to go through with it if Ronaldo triumphs!
If @Cristiano doesn’t win the Balon D’or tonight…..I will run down the street butt naked! Won’t be a great sight I tell ya!! Come on CR7!
