Raphael Varane sends message to Manchester United fans as Rio reacts
Raphael Varane was a class act as Manchester United beat Tottenham 3-0.
The defender was back in action after a groin injury suffered with France.
Varane sent a message to supporters after the victory, showing how happy he was to help his team.
Last week Varane was not fit enough to be on the bench as United were slaughtered by Liverpool.
His return helped United solidify the bottom line amid a tactical shift to go with three center-backs.
Varane helped Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire, who were so poor in the last few matches.
Former United center-back Rio Ferdinand praised Varane’s impact.
Varane showed his experience
Varane has won four Champions League titles and a World Cup and all of that experience has helped him adapt to the Premier League quickly.
The Frenchman has appeared to be playing in England for years, with Tottenham rarely disturbing him.
One can only wonder what would have been the result against Liverpool if he had played.
Next week United will face City, beaten 2-0 at home by Crystal Palace earlier today.
Varane will be tested a lot more against City than he has been against Tottenham, but he has given us plenty of reason to be confident he will step up again.
