Veteran centre back predicts more continued success under ex-Toffees boss.
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has sent out a stark warning to the rest of the Premier League by claiming that the Premier League champions will be even stronger next season under the management of new head coach David Moyes, reports the Daily Mail.
The former Everton boss replaced legendary Red Devils trainer Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford hot seat at the end of the previous campaign after the Scot had shocked the game by deciding to call time on his United career after more than 26 years at the helm of English football’s most successful club.
However, the one-time England international has predicted that the 20-time top-flight champions will simply get even stronger under the Glaswegian in the upcoming campaign, saying: “I think David Moyes will freshen up Man Utd squad.
“Hopefully he will bring more out of the players.
“He’s a football man, very passionate and just the right ingredient we needed at the club when Sir Alex Ferguson left.”
Moyes may have yet to win a trophy in his 15-year managerial career encompassing the likes of Preston North End and Everton, but the 50-year-old did win 218 of his 518 matches in all competitions in charge of the Toffees across an 11-year stay on Merseyside and shares many of the same qualities that made his predecessor the most successful manager in the history of English football.
