Manchester United defender and apparent victim of Carlos Tevez' penchant for amateur proctology Rio Ferdinand will not be headed to the land of Old Style and Wilco anytime soon according to the Chicago Fire.
“There is no substance to these current reports that the Fire is negotiating with Manchester United and the player to bring him to Chicago,” a Fire spokesperson said. “We have watched and admired the play of Rio Ferdinand for a number of years, and we would be thrilled to have a player of his quality join the Chicago Fire Soccer Club.”So sorry y'all. Looks like the infamous hot-shorts won't be making an appearance on the streets of Bridgeview this summer. Shame, that.
