Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has backed Victor Lindelof to replace Raphael Varane after his injury against Chelsea.
The Red Devils secured a 1-1 draw against Chelsea on Saturday, October 22, courtesy of Casemiro's header past Kepa Arrizabalaga late in stoppage time. However, Erik ten Hag's side suffered a massive blow in the game as Varane p psg shirt zwart roze icked up an injury and had to come off in the 60th minute.
The Frenchman has forged a strong partnership with Lisandro Martinez this season after replacing Harry Maguire at the heart of the defense.
Maguire started the season at center-back alongside Martinez but was replaced by Varane after Manchester United's poor start to the season.
Varane left the pitch in tears and could be a doubt for France in the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Ferdinand has tipped Lindelof to fill in for Varane during his absence ahead of skipper Harry Maguire.
The Swedish international was chosen to replace Varane at Stamford Bridge, with Maguire not ful psg jersey youth boys ly recovered from the injury he suffered on international duty in September. Ferdinand said on his Five YouTube channel:
"It seems to me that it isn't going to be Harry Maguire who comes in now. It looks like it's going to be [Victor] Lindelof.
"Lindelof is decent, I think he will come in and do a job, it just depends how long he’s being asked to do that job."
The Manchester United legend also insisted that the club need the duo of Varane and Martinez back playing together as soon as possible. He added:
"Martinez has been top this season but Varane gives us that something different, that speed, that experience and physicality. I think he could be a huge loss.
"You need them two [Varane and Martinez] back together. We’ve seen straight away that those two together make us a different team, it’s as simple as that."
