From Daily India:

England soccer ace Rio Ferdinand is planning a Roman toga theme party for his Manchester United club-mates.

The 28-year-old is hosting the Roman-style bash at his lavish mansion, to be attended by all the team's top players, such as Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, reports the Daily Mirror.

A club insider said: "It would be fantastic to see such familiar faces dressed up with swords, sandals and giant white sheets. There will no doubt be some skimpy numbers for the WAGs".

According to him, the party might witness a bit of debauchery as well to retain its authentic Roman flavour.

"The Romans were known for their debauched antics and I'm sure the lads will have an absolute ball. The full team will be there," he said.
