Gambling Football Star Ferdinand Loses Fast At Casino

Premier football player and brother of Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand was seen to storm out of a Newcastle casino after losing £6,000 ($9,360) in three spins of a roulette wheel.
The 25 year-old Sunderland defender Anton Ferdinand, was at a celebrity hangout in Newcastle city centre called Aspers night club  when he decided to test his luck at one of the casino’s American style roulette tables.
However, wagering £2,000 a spin on red only to see black come in three times in a row seemed to have been more than the £40,000 a week footballer could handle and he was seen to leave the casino soon after his quick succession of losses.
Describing the whole incident, Sunderland fan and eye-witness Simon Cook said:
“He was so angry. He did not say a word when he placed the two grand in cash each time, just rolled his eyes when it kept coming back on black. Then after losing six grand he stormed straight out of the casino. He was in for less than five minutes.”
“Times are hard and I don’t know what the fans will make of gambling that much. I suppose it’s like us betting £20. But it was a big loss, and in double quick time.”
The kindest thing you could probably say about his lightning visit to Aspers is that he at least departed quickly after blowing the cash rather than trying to chase his losses.
The latest story from Aspers comes shortly after another one involving footballers and excess released last week by The Mirror. Apparently, the £20 million Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll, 22 fell off his bar stool injuring his leg during a booze up at the same 24 hour night club/casino. The next day it was announced that he would have to miss the next three games for his club due to a thigh injury.
