Rio: No Signings? No Problem

Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand is adamant that the unusual lack of transfer activity at Old Trafford has not led to any unrest amongst the players.

Absolutely noting has come out of rumours linking the double crown holders to the the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Roque Santa Cruz, with only one new player arriving thus far in the form of Davide Petrucci from Roma, who, however, has clearly been recruited as one for the future.

"We just trust the manager's judgement," Ferdinand insisted to Sky Sports News.

"The manager makes the decisions and he's never ever steered us wrong before. We go along with whatever he says.

"If we don't sign any players then we'll go into the season as confident as ever. If we do, then great."

The England defender went on to point out that the emergence of youth prospect Frazier Campbell in pre-season is akin to a new signing, and he is confident that the ex Hull loanee will rise to the occasion.

"The opportunity is there for him, I think the manager outlined that last week," Ferdinand added.

"He came on against Espanyol and looked dangerous and scored a goal.

"He's a very talented footballer, but as I've said he's young. He's at such a young age and to be thrown in at the deep end, it's a big step to take. But the manager has dealt with these situations so many times before throughout his career.

"He's the man to know when to put him in and when to take him out. If Fraizer's put in I'm sure he can do a good job."

Finally, Ferdinand threw his full support behind club captain Gary Neville, who still can't be considered even near 100 percent.

The 33-year-old missed the entirety of last season due to injuries, making just one appearance throughout the campaign - in the Champions League quarterfinal against Roma - and not risked from then on due to the form of his replacement, Wes Brown.

Ferdinand added: "Gary Neville is the Man United captain. The sooner he gets fit for Manchester United the better because he is a fantastic player.

"We are hoping he'll be fit for the new season. He's had a lot of bad luck this year with injuries and we'd like to see him fit. He's a top player.

"We had three or fours weeks off in the summer and if you speak to most of the lads we're all champing at the bit to get back. We've had a few games in the pre-season and it's starting to get back to the nitty-gritty."
