Baby Bolshoi Not Baby Bentley
Anton Ferdinand has generated some positive publicity through an interview with The Guardian. The paper highlights the work Ferdinand does for West Ham's community schemes and the fact that he is one of the more proactive campaigners for Kick Racism Out of Football.
The interview is obviously geared towards refocusing Ferdinand's image away from being a member of the Baby Bentley Brigade and more towards a hard working player who hasn't forgotten his roots. The paper make much of Ferdinand's visits to his home in Peckham and his desire to join his brother in the England team.
However I'm not sure Rio will forgive him for outing his childhood ballet lessons.
