Word on the Tweet: Rio Ferdinand hints at coaching career after Under-18s session

There's reconciliation after a horror challenge on Monday, a smashing gift from a Swansea City player and Gary Lineker foresees bum-clenching in the relegation dogfight
Did you ever picture Rio Ferdinand as a coach one day? If not, time to start coughing awkwardly and whistling. If anyone asks, you saw it coming, even though it appears to have caught the Manchester United star by surprise.

Today's WOTT features the defender's career epiphany and much more - coffee, exaggerating Frenchmen and some shirt-swapping between two of the Premier League's top goalkeepers.

Craig Gardner also takes the opportunity to be lovely and gracious after a tackle that was decidedly neither of those things in Monday's action. Just another day in the wonderful world of footballers on Twitter...

"‏Trained with the u18's today....nice little workout! Coaching youngsters could be a bit of me, who knows!"

"Going to stick my neck out and go Coyle. Ticks all the boxes, motivated, big enough name, point to prove."
