Ferdinand

Former West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United defender Ferdinand comments on the signing of Schweinsteiger and Darmian by Manchester United.

Rio Ferdinand has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the signings of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Matteo Darmian by Manchester United.

Germany international midfielder Schweinsteiger has joined the Red Devils from Bundesliga champions Bayern, while Italy international defender Darmian has moved to the Premier League outfit from Serie A side Torino.

Former Manchester United, West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United defender Ferdinand believes that both are good signings for Louis van Gaal’s side.

Bastian Schweinsteiger

Schweinsteiger has suffered with injury problems of late, but he remains a world-class midfielder when fit.

The 2014 World Cup winner has worked with Louis van Gaal before, which means that the United boss knows what to expect from him.

An all-round midfielder, the 2013 Champions League winner will be a force to be reckoned with for United.

Matteo Darmian

During his time at Torino, Darmian established himself as one of the better full-backs in Serie A.

The former AC Milan man featured in 33 league games for the Turin outfit last season, scoring two goals and creating 39 chances in the process.

The 25-year-old had a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 37%, and won 24 headers, 29 dribbles and 61 tackles.
