Vidic: We’ll work hard for Moyes

6 July 2013 12:03

Nemanja Vidic believes the arrival of David Moyes will inspire Manchester United to work even harder.

The Old Trafford outfit will look to defend their Premier League crown without the guiding hand of Alex Ferguson next season, with the Scot having retired after 26 years at the helm.

Compatriot Moyes now has the task of building on Ferguson’s legacy and centre-back Vidic has insisted that he and his team-mates will put in the hard yards to make it happen.

"Players are going to increase their work," the Serb said at Moyes’ first press conference as United boss on Friday.

"David has worked in the Premier League and he knows the players, but the players will have something to prove to him.

"You’re playing for Manchester United and there is always pressure on the players and we have to work hard and help the manager achieve what he wants."

Moyes attempted to dismiss suggestions that Wayne Rooney could leave the club on Friday, despite his predecessor Ferguson having revealed the striker handed in a transfer request.

But Vidic says his team-mate is in fine fettle ahead of the new season, and says he is excited by the prospect of playing alongside him.

"Wayne is in the best shape I have seen him in the last five years," he added.

"I haven’t talked to Wayne about his future but I have seen him train extremely well over the last few days and am looking forward to him playing for the club and playing his best."
