Manchester United great Rio Ferdinand has revealed a small talk with Tottenham goalkeeper Joe Hart about Tanguy Ndombele during the FA Cup victory against Wycombe. Ndombele scored two goals in just 22 minutes to seal a 4-1 victory for Jose Mourinho’s side.

The former Manchester United defender repeated Hart’s praise for the midfielder. During the match, Hart was asked about Ndombele by former England teammate Ferdinand.

“I said to Joe, how good is he? And he said ‘this kid is a world-beater, he can do anything.’ He just turned around during the game and said ‘this kid is unplayable’,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Ferdinand also hailed the French midfielder.

“He came on and the game immediately changed because he can draw people in, beat a man one v one and then play the pass. His finish was so nonchalant it’s frightening. The two defenders were put all over the place. This guy, in terms of individual brilliance, has shown why Jose Mourinho has persevered with him because his talent is endless.”
