Rio Ferdinand is set to take his place amongst the legends of football. He was signed at 17 to West Ham and selected soon afterwards to play internationally. He transferred to Leeds at 21 for 18 million - then a record for a defender - and his skills soon made him a captain. Following his World Cup performance, he was bought by Manchester United for 30 million, once again breaking all records. This biography details the secrets behind this towering talent. It tells of a childhood on the rough streets of Peckham, how the death of classmate Stephen Lawrence affected him, his controversial behaviour in Cyprus and examines the footballing skills that spellbind stadiums.
