The Manchester United Centre-back, Rio Ferdinand, has said that David Moyes will be successful as Red Devils manager.
Moyes was appointed as United manager at the end of the last season. He replaced Sir Alex Ferguson who decided to retire after being in charge of the club for 26 years.
Moyes will start working as United manager in a few days and Ferdinand is pretty excited to play under his guidance.
When asked about Moyes’ appointment, Ferdinand said, “I think they were looking for a manager who could stay at the club for many years and emulate Sir Alex Ferguson’s work. So, they went for David.”
“I think David has great managerial qualities. At Everton, he was lacking resources, but, whatever he had, he used them quite well. Here, the resources will be available. So, we can expect him to do a good job.”
“Off course, he will manage the team in his own style, but, in some ways, he is like Alex Ferguson.”
“I am very excited to play under him. I have talked to him a couple of times and I have found him fully dedicated to football. You can discuss football with him for hours. He is also very keen to know more and more about the club.”
Moyes is believed to be making some big changes in United’s coaching staff. When asked about that, Ferdinand said, “I don’t think he will be changing too many things straightaway. I expect him to do that over a period of time, but, not now.”
Moyes’ first game in charge of Manchester United will be a pre season friendly against Singha All Stars XI. That game will be played on 13th of July at Rajamangala Stadium, Bangkok and will start at 2 pm British Standard Time.
