Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has heaped praise of Real Madrid youngster Raphael Varane.

Varane impressed Rio during Real's victory over Real Sociedad on Saturday.

Rio tweeted: "I'm enjoying the look of the young central defender for Real Madrid. He is 18 years old, looks good and calm."
