Rio Ferdinand has taken to Twitter to react to Manchester United signing Aaron Wan Bissaka from Crystal Palace.
The right-back just joined from Crystal Palace, becoming the second signing of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign after Daniel James arrived in an £18m deal from Swansea City earlier this month.
Wan-Bissaka heads to Old Trafford following an impressive season at Palace and Ferdinand has urged the defender to continue work hard on improving his game.
Ferdinand wrote on Twitter:
“Talented, Young, English & importantly hungry – great place to start. He has earned this opportunity & I wish Wan-Bissaka all the luck in the world on this new journey 👊🏽”
He also wrote on Instagram:
‘Now the hard work starts for this young English talent.’
Aaron himself is all pumped up as a result of the move, he said in an interview:
It’s an unbelievable feeling and an honour to call myself a Manchester United player and something I know that only a small number of players have the privilege to say.
“I can’t wait to get going and integrated into the squad. I will have a short break now after the European Championships but I’m looking forward to starting training with the manager and my new team-mates on the pre-season tour.”
When asked how he feels about the move, Aaron said:
“Yeah I am excited to have finally signed for this team. Every kid wants to play for a team like this. I am grateful and it is an honour to represent this club. I think I will improve every step and learn different things around new team-mates. I think Man United is a big club, a big family, a big fan base, and I think they all stick together and are so tight together.”
