PICTURE: Who knew Man United legend Rio Ferdinand was friends with divisive former Chelsea star?!

Posted by

When did Rio Ferdinand and David Luiz become best buds?

The Manchester United great and ex-Chelsea defender make a strange pairing. There seems to be little in common between them except for the obvious football connection and an interest in lairy fashion.

But Luiz uploaded a selfie of the two enjoying each other’s company to his official Instagram account, captioning the picture: “Thanks for the visit today bro, come back soon! #legend #bigexample.”

The Brazilian citing Ferdinand as a “big example” is even more curious considering that he defends like a headless chicken and the former England captain was always as mercurial as a Rolls-Royce!

Luiz divided opinion during his three years at Chelsea. His maverick playing style led Ferdinand’s old United mate Gary Neville to liken one of his performances to that of a 10-year-old on a PlayStation.

The 28-year-old, now at Paris Saint-Germain, would be wise to watch some more Ferdinand footage to make sure he is idolising the right bloke! He plays more like ex-England striker Les Ferdinand!
