Rio Ferdinand took a break from defending to record a short behind the scenes video prior to Manchester United's resounding 5-2 victory over Kitchee SC. 

Ferdinand, who was an unused substitute at Hong Kong Stadium, filmed a short clip which gives viewers a glimpse of the pitch as well as the gathered United supporters. 

He also captures footage of youngsters Michael Keane and Wilfried Zaha, who both started the game. 

Danny Welbeck started the rout with a simple finish after 16 minutes.

Defenders Chris Smalling and Fabio scored in quick succession to make it 3-0 shortly before the half-hour mark and Adnan Janujaz headed in a fourth five minutes into the second half after a cross from fellow substitute Alex Buttner. 

The hosts responded emphatically just three minutes later with a blistering effort from Lam Ka Wai and briefly threatened a comeback after Alex Alkande cut the deficit to 4-2 with 20 minutes remaining. 

However, midfielder Jesse Lingard made sure of the victory 10 minutes later. 

"I thought our players played very well on a difficult pitch," Moyes told the club's official website after the game. 

"I think we made it look like a good pitch. I thought we played well and it was an exciting for the supporters to see."

He added: "I've taken away a great experience of my first tour and what this club means around the world. 

"I've also got to know the players and I've settled into my new environment. 

"The players have been working with a great manager for a long time and they've got to know me."
