Last updated : 14 May 2009 By Daryl Baker
Sunderland defender Anton Ferdinand has revealed that older brother Man United and England star Rio Ferdinand has been busy giving younger brother tips and advice on his game.

Anton said, “There’s no one better to have than the best defender in the world as your brother.

“He’s always on the end of the phone line to talk to or quite often I’ll send him tapes of my games.

“He likes to watch and let me know what I’m doing right or wrong.

 “When I play, the last thing I remind myself is that I can’t let the family name down.

 “But it goes both ways. If I see he hasn’t done something to the best of his ability, I’ll text him.”
