Ferdinand: Moyes can build dynasty

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has issued a glowing endorsement to new boss David Moyes and suggested the Scot can build a new dynasty at Old Trafford as he follows in the footsteps of Sir Alex Ferguson.

• Blog: Utd set for 'Brianstorm'

Ferdinand believes "stability and longevity" were the chief criteria considered by United officials before then named Moyes as the club's next manager last month, with the former England centre-back convinced the new man ticks both boxes.

"I think the appointment of David Moyes signals longevity," said Ferdinand in a Daily Mirror interview. "More than anything, I think the club wanted a manager who was going to be here for a long period of time and try and emulate what Sir Alex did.

"The new boss will have his own ways and his own style of management, but there are elements of Sir Alex in him. He always produced competitive teams at Everton, with very little resources. Now he will have those resources, hopefully we'll see the fruits of that with our team.

"David Moyes is determined, he's winner and you can see that his teams have a real identity about them in terms of the way they play. There's also an intensity about the way he is as a person. Whenever I've met him I've been struck by that and I think he'll be a great addition to the club."

Moyes has already made his mark at United by shaking up the club's coaching staff, while there are suggestions that the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Cesc Fabregas may be on his list of transfer targets this summer, but Ferdinand is not expecting radical changes at Old Trafford.

"Obviously we'll still be doing a lot of things we've done in the past that have brought us success," said Ferdinand. "It would be naïve to think the new manager will come in and everything will change dramatically in one fell swoop.

"He'll change things over the course of time and a club like United has a proven history of giving managers a chance to do that. I've not seen anyone in the past be successful at a club by coming in and changing everything completely on day one.

"There's nothing to suggest that will happen. The manager will come in with new ideas and will want to implement new things. I know that the players we've got within our changing room will embrace that completely and give everything for him.

"It will be different at first, but I can't wait to get back in again and start training under the new manager and his staff. I've spoken to the new boss a few times and what's pleasing is that he's a football man through and through.

"You could sit and talk to him for ages about the game, and he wants to know everything about the club. He's coming in with his eyes and ears wide open to learn everything there is about the club and hopefully continue the success we have had.

"You want to be a part of something new and exciting, and this is just that. It's a great opportunity to write another chapter in the club's amazing history."
