Manchester United hero Rio Ferdinand gets given the worst present ever

Rio Ferdinand

As presents go, this is pretty god awful, isn't it?

When it's your birthday, you expect a few good presents and if your mate is a former professional footballer, you'd expect something very good from them.

So with former Manchester United and England hero Rio Ferdinand celebrating his 39th birthday, we're sure he got some pretty cool gifts from his mates.

And when his BT colleague and professional banter merchant Robbie Savage decided to get Ferdinand a present, you'd have thought it'd be decent.

However, because Savage is just HILARIOUS, he decided to get Rio a gift that we're not sure if anyone would want or ever buy someone. 

Robbie Savage's autobiography... the horror! 

And Rio really didn't look impressed with his present from Savage, but absolutely ruined him by saying: "Oh look, it's a sleeping tablet."

Well, if his commentary is anything to do by, then Rio might be getting a few early nights if he actually decides to give it a read.

However, we reckon that we'll probably see it up on eBay, or Rio will probably give it to some very unlucky person this Christmas.
