Was he being funny or plain dopey?
Manchester United centre back Rio Ferdinand made himself look a little stupid on Thursday morning when he turned to Twitter to type:
When does the #Ashes start people, I’m looking forward to it???
The Ashes, for any football fans who don’t know, is the name for the test series between England and Australia which kicked off Down Under through the night (in Europe) on Wednesday.
Ferdinand’s faux pas was instantly picked up by his hoards on followers, and plenty of poeple were only too quick to respond the the Man United man with comedy quips.
