Former Manchester United player, Rio Ferdinand, has hailed the remarkable turnaround the club has shown in the form in recent weeks.

The Red Devils were under enormous pressure before the international break, after losing two matches in their opening three— including a 6-1 drubbing by Tottenham.

However, the international break has come and gone, and Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have recorded important wins against tough oppositions, including a 4-0 win away at Newcastle, a 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain and now a 5-0 win over RB Leipzig.

Ferdinand has watched his former side show resilience despite the pressure they seemed to be under, and he has the best words for them.

“That’s football, it can change quick,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

“The highs are very high, the lows are deeper than you can imagine. They’ve regrouped well, fitness has been key after Spurs and Palace.”

He added: “What I’m seeing is the depth. Players are coming in, there’s not been much of a change in the teams they’re putting out and they’re getting results.

“Today [Marcus] Rashford comes on, Bruno [Fernandes] comes on and it impacts the game.”

Paul Scholes also had a few nice words to say of his own, as he chipped in: “That Spurs game would’ve scared Ole to death.

“He had to try and make the team more solid, playing the two in front of the back four has done that.

“You look ahead of that – the quality, the speed… Fernandes with his passing quality, Rashford, [Anthony] Martial, [Mason] Greenwood… so many brilliant attacking players.

“He’s found a way of playing which suits the squad he’s got.”
