Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says that he and his teammates need to prove their worth to new manager David Moyes, according to Sky
The Everton boss will take over at the club in July after 11 years in the Everton hotseat at Goodison Park, having been recommended for the role by outgoing United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
But Ferdinand, 34, believes no one can rely on their reputations to be assured of a place in the Scot’s Old Trafford plans.
Ferdinand said: “We’ve got to prove ourselves to the new manager. He’s going to come in with new ideas, new rules, a new regime.
“No matter how long you’ve been here, whether it’s the likes of Giggsy (Ryan Giggs) or myself, we’re going to be in the same boat as people like Danny Welbeck, Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley. We have got to make sure he feels we’re the right people to start each game.”
The former England captain is out of contract at Manchester United in the summer and is yet to be offered a new deal by the club.
Meanwhile Ferguson, who wrapped up his 13th Premier League title this season, will bring the curtain down on his managerial career at the weekend when the Red Devils visit West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.
