VIDEO: Kano & Rio Ferdinand perform a karaoke duet

You can presume that Sir Alex Ferguson will not be best pleased with the release of this latest video.

For weeks now Rio Ferdinand has been coming under fire for his below par performances for Manchester United. And one of the underhanded criticisms of the England centre-half is that rather than focus all his energies on his footballing career, Rio now splits his focus between his life on the pitch and his celebrity life off it.

Indeed, according to The Times’ scribe Sir Alex Ferguson has told Rio Ferdinand to get his priorities straight after ordering the Manchester United defender to pull out of the screening of a new film he helped to fund. Ferdinand was due to attend the Manchester premiere on Thursday night of Dead Man Running, a movie he co-produced with Ashley Cole, an England team-mate, but Ferguson instructed him to stay away amid concerns that off-field distractions are contributing to his poor form.”

That said, we wonder what the backlash will be for a video released a couple of weeks ago on YouTube that capture Rio with his celebrity rapper pal Kano performing a karaoke number in a pub, with Rio showing off some fancy moves as well as swigging on a beer during his performance.
