Rio Ferdinand backs a vote to remain in the EU

Footballer Rio Ferdinand has followed in David Beckham's footsteps and also backed a vote to Remain.

Ferdinand said "I haven't liked what I've seen" from the Leave campaign and he was taught how "no individual is bigger than the team".

He said: "I think all the focus on immigration has been a real shame. I don't want Britain to become an angry and mean-spirited country. I think there's a danger that, if Leave wins, it'll be an endorsement of the idea that it's OK to blame all our problems on foreigners."

He added: "Sir Alex Ferguson always taught us that no individual is bigger than the team; that just because we played for Man United – a massive, famous club – didn’t mean we could swan around doing our own thing. We had to work even harder, and be even more of a team, to get where we wanted to be. And I think Europe is a bit like that."
