Rio Ferdinand is confident that Manchester United will be celebrating silverware in the near future.

The Red Devils are in sixth place in the Premier League table and 10 points behind current leaders Chelsea in the title race.

The 20-time English champions can win their first major trophy under new manager Jose Mourinho this weekend when Manchester United host Southampton at EFL Cup final on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United are in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup but the Red Devils must beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to reach the last four of the competition.

Taking to Instagram ahead of Manchester United’s clash at Saint-Etienne following last week’s 3-0 at Old Trafford, Ferdinand posted the above clip and wrote the following caption:

“Maybe @premierleague Champions is asking a bit much but I have a feeling the @manchesterunited team & fans will be doing a bit of this soon… The MC has to come correct tho!! What a day… #20 #winning #mufc”

Manchester United won their first piece of silverware in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era when the Red Devils eased to a 2-1 extra-win against Crystal Palace at Wembley in the FA Cup final.

Mourinho was appointed as Van Gaal’s successor in May 2012.
