It started as a joke but the dream would become a reality this Saturday…
I can categorically inform you that Manchester United and England defender Rio Gavin Ferdinand will be landing at the Entebbe Airport on June 16 at 8 a.m.
The world’s high-priced defender will be here on a three-day visit at the invitation of Mujib Kasule’s PRO-LINE Soccer Academy.
Kasule told Rafshizzle that Ferdinand would help raise funds for the academy in their quest to acquire a permanent home.
US$540,000 is needed for the complex.
Ferdinand will arrive with a crew 20 and he will address the press at the airport lounge. He will continue to Serena for a dinner before resting at the same hotel.
There will be a charity football march in Nakivubo on June 17 before winding up the day with an exclusive party at Ange Mistique.
And Ferdinand would return to England on June 18---you he needs to prepare for the Premiership since the fixtures have been announced today and Manchester opens with one of the hardest underdogs Reading.
A table of eight at Serena will cost US$900.
Pro-Line has over 160 kids.
Ferdinand’s father Julian and cousin Maxine Ferdinand, a scout, will accompany Rio to Uganda.
Maxine would also market our boys in UK. The Academy will also open up a link with West Ham United.
The Hammers have since donated sports equipment worth £30,000 to the Academy while Nike Sports wear manufacturers have a five year deal to provide the Academy with Nike goods.
Ferdinand, 29, joined Man United, the reigning English champions in a record deal for a defender worth £29.1m from Leeds in 2002.
He started his career with West Ham before joining Leeds United for £18m in November 2000.
He made his international debut as a substitute in 2-0 win over Cameroon on November 15 1997, making him the youngest defender to play for the national team.
He has 59 caps to date for England.
So guys, you know where to find the autos and ladies, please pray hard because Ferdinand was caught up in an alleged sex-tape scandal in 2000 with team-mates Frank Lampard, Kieron Dyer in the resort of Ayia Napa in Cyprus and you know, “Once bitten, twice…”
