Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand was clearly impressed by the performance of Toni Kroos for Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The 24-year old German midfielder, who was reportedly a transfer target for the Red Devils in January, starred for the Bavarians as they beat Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Kroos scored Bayern's opening goal in the 54th minute with a superb curling effort and had other chances in a sublime showing in a central midfield role which prompted the following tweets from Ferdinand.
