David Winner
Rio Ferdinand is one of the finest footballers of his generation: a Champions League and Premier League-winning centre back who began life as an ambitious kid on the council estates of south-east London only to grow into one of the game's greatest stoppers. Candid, outspoken and supremely honest, this is his story: from the early days as a schoolboy trying to impress the local kids on the muddy pitches of Peckham, through to picking up the Champions League trophy on a rainy summer's night in Moscow, #2Sides is the tell-all account of a unique life in the game.

On winning and losing; on defending and attacking; on managers and fellow players; on friendships and rivalries; on the ups and downs of the beautiful game; and on playing for club, country and for yourself this is a full spectrum of life at the very top of the footballing tree, and a superb retrospective of a truly fascinating career.
