Rio Ferdinand

"An all-round midfielder who possesses quality and character in abundance."
Marcello Lippi

“At 16, he reminded me of Kenny Dalglish – one of the best British players I ever seen. He always seems to have eyes in the back of his head. He always seems to know where every player is on the pitch and which direction they’re moving in. That means he can read the game brilliantly and assess the angles to split even the tightest of defences with a single pass.”
Eric Harrison, former United youth coach

“There isn’t a player of his mould anywhere in the world.”
Glenn Hoddle, former England manager

"Paul has always been inspirational to players of all ages and we know that will continue in his new [coaching] role."
Sir Alex Ferguson

"Paul Scholes established himself as one of the greatest players to ever wear the United shirt."
David Gill
