London: Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has appealed to his teammates to improve on their away form as it takes a toll on the overall performance.

United won the Premier League with the worst away record of any team to take the title, yet dropped only two points at home, a daily reports.

United has just taken five wins from 19 away games. They have lost four and drawn 10.

“We had an unbelievable home record but our away form was shocking,” Ferdinand was quoted, as saying.

“It can get into your system. We were 2-0 up in games and got pegged back or lost. Hopefully we can put that record to bed,” he added.
