Manchester United: Red Devils fans react to Rio Ferdinand’s comments on Aaron Wan-Bissaka - Manchester United

Lots of Manchester United fans have been reacting to club legend Rio Ferdinand’s latest comments on Aaron Wan-Bissaka during an Instagram livestream

Speaking in a fan Q&A, Ferdinand said “If you moulded them two players together, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Trent Alexander-Arnold, you’ve got the best player.”

“Aaron Wan-Bissaka one-versus-one, I’ve seen [Raheem] Sterling play against him and Sterling rinses everybody, he finds it hard against Wan-Bissaka.”

“One-versus-one he will match you physically, he will run with you, he will slide on the floor if you’re getting away from him a little bit more and he has to go into overdrive.”

The former England international concluded “he can cover people, unbelievable. He could play right side of a back three at Man United if they wanted to, I think he’d be brilliant there.” Wan-Bissaka has played in 26 games in the Premier League for the Red Devils this season, making 3.8 tackles per game, averaging 2 interceptions, and completing 1.9 clearances on average (WhoScored).

Since moving to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace last summer for £49.5m, the 22-year-old has made 34 appearances in all competitions for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, providing 2 assists. His current market value is estimated at £36m via Transfermarkt.

Wan-Bissaka put in an impressive performance during the 2-0 victory over derby rivals Manchester City, passing 3 long balls, successfully completing 4 dribble attempts, and winning a staggering 12 out of 13 ground duels (SofaScore).

As expected many supporters have gushed over Ferdinand’s high praise of the talented youngster on Twitter, with one fan dubbing the defender a “beast.” Another remarked he is a “top top signing!”
