Rio Ferdinand singles out one United star for praise after Juventus display

The Red Devils completed a remarkable turnaround in the dying embers of the game to steal the points at the Allianz Stadium last night.

Cristiano Ronaldo looked to have settled the game after a sumptuous volley but United come back AGAIN to give the side a major lift ahead of their Manchester City clash this weekend.

The Old Trafford outfit went 1-0 down to Bournemouth in the match before Marcus Rashford came up with the goods with a final minute winner.Jose Mourinho sent on Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini and it was the former that grabbed the equaliser with a stunning free-kick.

And Fellaini causing mayhem in the box led to an Alex Sandro own goal in the last minute to gift United the win.

There were echoes of their famous 1999 Champions League victory which was the last time they have come back to win a game with two goals in the final five minutes of a match in Europe.

And it was the first time Juventus lost a Champions League group stage home game match since December 2009.

But it Martial that was picked out by Ferdinand for being the star of the show.

“Exactly what we wanted, going into the derby at the weekend as well, what a fantastic result,” said Ferdinand. “Confidence I’m sure will be on the rise.

“What a difficult place to go, this stadium, they’ve made it a fortress over the last couple of years.

“The substitutions, Jose’s got to take huge credit. Mata coming on got the goal, Fellaini causing havoc in there as well.

“I think that the substitutes played a really vital part in the ending of this match.

“But Martial I think deserves special mention, I thought he was Man United’s best player on the day.”

The Red Devils take on City in a huge derby match this Sunday at the Etihad.
