Ex-West Ham & QPR defender Anton Ferdinand joins Police United FC in Thailand on 2-year deal

Rio Ferdinand’s younger brother Anton was marked out as a star of the future in his youth football days.

Winning 17 England U21 caps, the world seemed to be at Anton’s feet, but his career has been on a downward spiral ever since leaving West Ham in 2008.

After making just 3 league appearances for Turkish side Antalyaspor last season, Anton Ferdinand is now headed to the Land of Smiles, to play for Police United in the Thai Premier League, based in central province Pathum Thani.

(To answer your question: No, you do not have to be a Thai policeman to play for the club.)
