Vincent Kompany has rubbished the suggestion Manchester United will be “weakened opposition” next season under new manager David Moyes.

The 50-year-old Everton boss was named as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor and the Scotsman will sign a six-year deal on 1 July.

United won their 13th Premier League crown at a canter this season but the Manchester City captain expects the Red Devils still to be strong next term despite Ferguson’s departure.

“I wouldn’t expect a weakend opposition because a new manager has come in, certainly not at Manchester United,” Kompany told Sky Sports.

“All the praise is due for him [Sir Alex Ferguson], he’s a great manager.”

Meanwhile, City midfielder Yaya Touré, who was previously linked with a move to United before moving to Eastlands outfit, heaped praise on the Red Devils boss.

“He’s good manager [Sir Alex Ferguson] as it’s something unbelievable he’s done for Manchester United and I hope he stays in football,” Touré said.

Finally, Frank Lampard revealed his admiration for Ferguson’s style of management, describing the 71-year-old as the “God” of football.

“When I look at Sir Alex Ferguson I love his ways, and the way he run Manchester United is a phenomenal achievement. He’s a God of football,” Lampard told
