Rio Ferdinand believes winning the Premier League title with Manchester United under new manager David Moyes in the former Everton boss’ first season in charge would be even more special than the trophy claimed in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in the dugout, ESPN
Ferdinand also backed the appointment of Moyes as Ferguson’s successor, saying the younger Scot is the ideal man to carry on his predecessor’s legacy. “To win the league under David Moyes would be phenomenal,” Ferdinand said.
“Last season was one of the best when we won title No. 20 but this could go beyond that. To win it at the first attempt with a new man in charge would be something special.”
Ferdinand continued: “Moyes is a real football man and an honest guy. His hard working ethic reflects the man himself and he obviously wants success. We’ve got a great chance with this manager.”
The former West Ham and Leeds centre-back has now won six Premier League titles in his decade at Old Trafford, having played more than 400 games in all competitions for Manchester United. Ferdinand, 34, also won 81 England caps before stepping away from the international scene earlier in the year.
