Man Utd keeper Van der Sar happy with Ferdinand return
Considering United had let in seven goals in their previous three Premier League away games, it was no wonder keeper Edwin van der Sar was delighted to have him in the side.
The Dutch veteran said: "It is nice when you get experienced players back. He did really well and has been working so hard to regain his fitness.
"He had the disappointment of not captaining England at the World Cup. But, hopefully, all the hard work he has put in will pay off and give him a good season without missing too many matches."
