Robin van Persie is known to make bold decisions. The Dutch striker's move from Arsenal to Manchester United comes to mind. However, former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand believes that wasn't van Persie's boldest decision yet.
Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole and Robin van Persie were in the studio as they reviewed Chelsea's thrilling 4-4 draw against Ajax on Champions League Matchday 4. Speaking after the game with Gary Lineker, the trio of Cole, Ferdinand and van Persie were moments away from closing their review when former Arsenal striker asked Rio Ferdinand for the time of the day. Ferdinand had a hilarious response in mind and, just like his tackles, timed his delivery perfectly. Ferdinand responded to van Persie's question by saying that it was time to sort out the former Arsenal forward's blazer.
The Dutchman sported a bold maroon-coloured jacket on the night. Clearly, his bold decision didn't go down too well with Rio Ferdinand. Ferdinand, who considers himself a bit of a fashion icon, left the whole panel in laughs, as Gary Lineker brought an end to the review of the trio.
Speaking during the review, both Robin van Persie and Rio Ferdinand admitted to being surprised by Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham's form this season. Abraham plied his trade in the Championship last season, as he led Aston Villa to promotion after a prolific goalscoring season. Abraham seems to have picked up right where he left off, netting nine times in 11 games for the Blues so far. The English striker is just one goal behind Leicester City's Jamie Vardy in the Premier League goalscoring charts this season. Rio Ferdinand went on to say that he believed Dominic Solanke was a better bet than Tammy Abraham for the Blues.
