Extra sharpness expected - Rio

Rio Ferdinand expects there to be an extra sharpness about Manchester United in pre-season due to the desire to impress David Moyes.

Ferdinand is about to enter his 12th season at United, and the current tour of the Far East is his fourth such expedition to this part of the world.

All the rest have been under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson but the Scot's retirement has brought a seismic change at Old Trafford.

And Ferdinand believes the impact will particularly be felt on the training ground.

"It's natural that everybody is trying to impress on this tour," Ferdinand told www.manutd.com.

"When you get a new manager you want to show him that you should be in the starting XI for that first day of the new season. That process has started already."
