Rio Ferdinand finally reveals if he ever did get that lift off Wayne Rooney

It’s one of the great moments in the history of Twitter.

On April 22, 2011, Wayne Rooney tweeted “Hi rio do u want picking up in the morning pal” – Rio Ferdinand wasn’t @’d, it was probably meant to be a DM or even a text, and we never got a full explanation. It was back when they were Manchester United team-mates, so we can guess that it might have been a lift to the Carrington training ground. But we never got a response from either player.

However, six years later, we got to speak to Ferdinand at the FIFA 18 launch this week – and we couldn’t resist asking him if ever did ever get a lift off Rooney.

Ferdinand explained:

I never knew where that came from. For years I saw it and didn’t think anything of it.

Here’s the full video with Rio:
