Ferdinand: Ferguson will get best from new Man Utd team

Rio Ferdinand believes Manchester United's young team are destined for great things under manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

"Any year is going to be hard to win the league," he said.

"The fact other teams have spent a lot of money poses different questions but it also raises questions about them. Will they gel? Will they become better teams? Will their managers be able to cope with having so many players in the squad? Will he be able to juggle?

"It is all ifs and buts. We will see when Christmas comes how the teams have dealt with their respective acquisitions and how they are going.

"The one thing I do know is that our manager is very experienced in that capacity, so hopefully that will give us the step in front we want."
