- Q&A With Les Ferdinand
World Cup 2010 - 60 seconds with Les Ferdinand
Eurosport - Tue, 29 Jun
The former England striker spoke to us about flying helicopters and his old school hip hop tastes.
..Who was your sporting hero?
Muhammad Ali. He was an inspiration. I am a boxing fan but, for me, he was the first global black sports star who was able to speak their mind and be excellent in what they did.

What would you have done if you hadn't become a footballer?
I didn't complete my schooling as well as I would have liked, so I would have gone back and got myself some sort of trade. What that would have been I'm not quite sure. I was giving myself until I was 20 to make it. That was the cut-off point.

Which team did you most enjoyed beating?
Everton, more than anybody else. I just always had loads of stick from their supporters. Consequently I scored more goals against them than any other team.

What is your most embarrassing moment on the pitch?
Scoring an own goal was pretty embarrassing. I got one at Crystal Palace while I was with QPR.

To balance that, which goal stands out as your best?
There was one for Spurs against Manchester United at Old Trafford (on the final day of the season in 1999). You don't get to score many goals up there, but I lobbed Peter Schmeichel from an angle. I thought to myself "that's not a bad goal", but I couldn't celebrate, because it was the year that Arsenal and United were battling for the title, and I knew that if we beat them Arsenal would win the title.

Who had the best dressing room banter?
When I was at QPR, the lads were great. Ian Holloway was great, Alan McDonald was great, it was fantastic
. When any player comes out of football, they always miss the banter....
