Rio wants to win trophies for Moyes.
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has reiterated his desire to stay at the club next season to help new boss David Moyes collect his first trophy, Sky Sports reports.
The 34-year-old is out of contract this summer and has missed chunks of the season through a series of niggling injuries and there have been doubts over whether the club would offer him a new deal.
He has expressed his desire to stay anyway, and took time out to praise his outgoing boss and talk up his excitement over new incoming manager David Moyes.
“Manchester United has a bright future,” he said.
“The manager has left the club in great health and we are looking forward. We have a great number of good young players who are eager to win things and be successful and work hard.”
“That is what the manager has instilled in these players. The work ethic has to continue if we are going to be successful. I would like to be part of that.”
Ferdinand also went on to discuss his shock at Ferguson’s shock announcement to retire last week.
“It was like a bolt out of the blue. No one was expecting it. It disappointed a lot of us but I understand the manager’s reasons.”
“He has had a great stint and an unbelievably successful period. He instilled great qualities in the club and we must carry that on.”
