The reason for Rio Ferdinand’s mysterious exit from the live broadcast of Paris Saint Germain’s clash with Newcastle United has been revealed.

According to the SKY BLAST TV, Manchester United legend Ferdinand was forced to leave the live Champions League match coverage on Tuesday evening due to illness.
