Man Utd midfielder Lingard: Honour to be on same pitch as Ferdinand

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard admits its a thrill to play with Rio Ferdinand.

Lingard has been likened to French legend Jean Tigana by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

"Rio's always playing jokes. It's great fun," he said. "But to share a field with them is an even more exciting experience. Sir Alex welcomed us into the team as well. I just hope I can play with the first-team a lot more this season."
