The England captain insists United wonâ€™t be blowing their own trumpet until their hands are on the Premier League trophy.
He says United are determined to reclaim their crown and added: â€śWe are not singing and dancing about being top.
â€śWe will sing and dance in May if we are still top. I would rather be there then. We just want to win that league.â€ť
Ferdinandâ€™s defensive partnership with Nemanja Vidic is steering United towards another title.
He said: â€śI donâ€™t know if it is just down to me and him being together.
â€śThe whole thing is not as fragmented this season.
â€śNo matter what team you are, you are going to suffer when you donâ€™t have centre-backs playing in that position.
â€śBut I am comfortable with Vida. We have played together for a few years.
â€śWe know each otherâ€™s games inside out and that feeds through to the other players.
â€śUs winning would be a blow to them if we got six points in front. But they were six or seven clear of us a month ago.
â€śIt can all change so quickly if you have a bad run. It would be a good boost for us if we could win but it wonâ€™t define our season.â€ť
