Ferdinand Welcomes New Breed!

Eager to quiz our stars at the introductory press conference, in the USA, Rio Ferdinand was one player asked some probing questions.

Pressed on the changing face of the squad, Rio had this to say,

"New players are just what the club needs."

"As the boss has said before, three of the most experienced players at the club have retired. So the manager has reinforced in certain positions."

"This is a club that always evolves. Since I`ve been here the team has evolved and I`ve been part of that."

"It`s not about you as an individual or your personal feelings, it`s all about the club becoming better, more stable and continuing the success we`ve had over the years."

"It`s great to see young players coming through, from the reserves and the youth ranks."

"And it`s great when the boss brings in players like Phil Jones, Ashley Young and David de Gea, who we hope can continue the longevity and the success that we`ve had."


Playing devils advocate, I wonder if Rio is at all concerned that two of the big money buys, over the last fourteen months, have been centre-backs in the form of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, with Rio`s recent injury record is there a plan afoot?

After all, Sir Alex Ferguson has never been shy when it comes to making what many would feel to be a difficult decision regarding time limitations on a players` career at Old Trafford!

I don't think Ferdinand will be losing too much sleep about his position at the club. With our injury records at the back it's important he stays. He's a good influence on the youngsters and I remember Smalling mentioning how he helped him when we played and beat City 2-1 by telling him how to handle Tevez.

With Nev and Scholsey retiring Rio will have an even bigger role now. Gotta pass on the traditions.
