Rio Ferdinand hails Manchester United player for his performance against Fulham

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Paul Pogba for his fantastic performance in the club’s narrow win over Fulham.

Relegation-battlers Fulham took an early lead at Craven Cottage on Wednesday evening as Ademola Lookman beat the offside trap and slotted past David de Gea.

Veteran striker Edinson Cavani scored the equaliser midway through the first half and Pogba curled home a fantastic winner on 65 minutes to take the club back above Leicester City to the top of the table.

“Today he [Pogba] put in a fantastic performance,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“The big difference recently is he’s been playing quicker. He’s quick with what he’s doing, the efficiency is top, top drawer.

“He is a magnificent footballer and when he’s in this form, he’s one of the best.”
