Ferdinand: Man United can be on auto-pilot as Moyes tinkers next season
Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand believes the Red Devils can go on "auto-pilot" next term as David Moyes tinkers with his side
Rio Ferdinand believes Manchester United have the experience to be on “auto-pilot” as David Moyes tinkers with the Red Devils side next season.
The 50-year-old was named as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor in May after the Red Devils legend decided to call time on a 26-year reign at Old Trafford following a 13th Premier League title.
Moyes is set to pen a six-year deal with the 20-time English champions on 1 July, and Ferdinand expects the Scot to try and stamp his own mark on United.
And the 34-year-old believes the current United squad have the necessary know-how when it comes to winning top-flight titles which should make life easier for Moyes.
“The new manager wants to put his own imprint on the team. That is what you would expect as players. We are open-minded to that,” Ferdinand said.
“But, hopefully, the fact he has got people in there who know how to get the job done will give him a little bit of time.
“The team can be on auto-pilot with the manager just tinkering to make sure it is done the right way.
“If we need to change tactics, that is when the manager comes into his own with whatever training methods he wants to use.
“In terms of going out on a Saturday and getting games won, a lot of us have been doing it for years. That is why we have been here for so long and won so many trophies.”
