Rio Ferdinand sends message to Man United fans over recent form
Rio Ferdinand has his say about Manchester United's recent form under Jose Mourinho
Rio Ferdinand believes that Manchester United have begun to show promise under new boss Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils have made something of a stuttering start to life under their new boss following the Portuguese coach’s appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.
United headed into the weekend’s round of Premier League fixtures trailing leaders Chelsea by nine points as they look to climb the table.
Mourinho has been tasked with steering United back into the Champions League following their disappointing fifth-placed finish last season.
Ferdinand feels that there are reasons for United fans to be positive with what they have seen in recent weeks, especially the blossoming partnership between Michael Carrick and Paul Pogba in central midfield.
Speaking on BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show, Ferdinand said: “I went to watch United on Thursday. Although it was against a weak Feyenoord team, they showed signs that there is a bit more balance in the team.
“He [Mourinho] seems to have come across the team he’s favouring at the moment. He’s found two central midfielders in Pogba and Carrick, which he hadn’t found until now.
“They look a better team.”
Manchester United will once again host West Ham in the League Cup quarter-final clash at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
