United won their campaign by winning on Friday, beating Leicester 2-1 at Old Trafford. Ferdinand is impressed he has seen, but believes it is difficult to finish above both City and Liverpool.

"Manchester midfielder Paul Pogba has captained the team and scored an opening against Leicester, and Ferdinand is desperate for him to take his form from the World Cup, where he won the tournament with France" new what we need, is what we want, "he added." Pogba has just won the World Cup, he was one of the main players of the team. "We sat there, we looked at him, we were talking so positively about him, but can we see him in a United shirt? "Return, four days of training, with an armband and put the performance of a real captain considering the time he lost." This is so much for his personality, his state of mind, and I think it's a great statement in favor of Manchester United from that perspective. "And you have to say, a great start and a great first choice of Jose Mourinho's marker to make sure that probably one of his ncipali players return and you feel a real part of the team, consider what happened in the summer.
