Many of you will be curious on what are Ronaldinho, David Beckham, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Ballack and Michael Essien doing these days, after being ruled out of the FIFA World Cup 2010 due to injuries/bad form? Take a deep breath! We gotcha! :)
We visited these people and interviewed them about their activity during this World Cup after bad luck kicked them out of the grand tournament even before the event could kick off.

The first to be interviewed were Michael Ballack and Rio Ferdinand. This is what Ferdinand replied as the interviewee:
“You know what! Injuries are part of a sportsman’s life, but to get injured at the eve of World Cup must be a jealous magician’s act! I couldn’t resist anyway, so Ballack and I decided to still be part of the enchanting fever! There are big screens placed at many places of Europe, where herds of people gather to watch matches, and what we do there is serve pop corns. Yeah! Pop corns! But nobody knows it’s us! We have our super hero masks on. We dance, we chill! We both make ourselves flow with the river of the football fever!”
This is what Ronaldinho had to say:
“It was a shock for me not to get selected in the World Cup squad, but that wasn’t the end for me! I still represent Brazil, although through the EA Sports FIFA 2010 video game and Pro Evolution Soccer. It’s so much fun sprinting on the soccer field wearing the yellow Brazil jersey on Play Station 3!”
David Beckham said:
“Though they made me a mediator between management and the players and as an English member of the coaching staff for the England national football team for the World Cup, but what I’m really doing these days is playing the Football Fantasy League at different websites! You know what’s most interesting for me? I AM the captain of my side at the league! No Ferdinand near me! It’s just me, making the rest of the ten men march on the soccer field! I’m enjoying every bit of the captaincy feeling!”
Michael Essien said:
“I knew I can still be a part of the World Cup in some way! Having the African domicile, I decided to sell vuvuzelas throughout Africa, so that I surpass my dream of earning more money off the field, in comparison to what I earn on field by playing, just like Ronaldinho does through commercials!”
