rio ferdinand towel

Many of you may have forgotten that picture of Rio Ferdinand in a crop top and hot pants in 2009. We haven’t. And we’re starting to think that the Manchester United footballer has a thing for dressing like a woman.

Ferdinand was snapped during a training session in Shanghai, China this week; his club is currently in the Far East, trying to win the hearts and minds of the Chinese people. But we reckon the only thing he’s going to win is a advertising campaign with L’oreal!

Unless this is some new fashion trend we don’t know about, women normally wear towels in this fashion when they just come out of the shower. And Ferdinand is neither a woman, nor has he come out of a shower so you can understand our confusion.

Oh and for those of you who want to see the 33-year-old in a crop top and hot pants, voila:

Apparently it was for his stag do *side eye*.
