Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand was impressed with the performance of Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United side against Liverpool on Tuesday.

According to Ferdinand, Manchester United did things supporters have been “crying out” for during the 4-0 win over Liverpool in our pre-season opener in Bangkok.

Jadon Sancho, Fred and Anthony Martial scored in the first-half to give Manchester United a 3-0 lead at half-time. United increased the tally after the half-time interval, scoring a fourth goal through substitute Facundo Pellistri.

On Twitter, Ferdinand said: “Seen a few things we’ve been crying out for the last few years. But we’ve seen it sparingly before. All in all, [a] good day at the office! I’m feeling the Ten Hag look on the touch line.”

On the performance and victory, Ten Hag himself commented: “Of course we are satisfied today because I think it was a team with a great spirit, and we know we have just started.

“We did the press, a few mistakes in pressing, conceded some chances, but we also created a lot.

“I think our team played brave, played proactive. We have to work really hard to get out of the mistakes, but of course we are happy with the first game.”
