EZEQUIEL AS VIDIC COVER
– has injected a new urgency into the team.
Carrick also loves the fact Moyes is hands-on with training rather than his predecessor’s style of taking a back seat and letting the coaches do the work.
The Reds are in Sydney as part of their pre-season tour and scaled the famous Harbour Bridge in the Aussie city yesterday.
But they are also ready to climb to new heights under Moyes this season.
Carrick (right) said: “The tour’s been really good so far and there is a great atmosphere around the places.
“The manager has brought that in. He is enthusiastic, energetic and intense with his work, and that’s rubbed off on everyone straight away.
“Training has been good and there is a huge focus and a good feel around the place.
“The new manager is hands-on in training. He’s a lot different to Sir Alex in that sense.
“He tended to take a step back and let the coaches deal with things, whereas David likes to be right in the thick of it and that’s good.
“It creates an intensity and everyone has responded to that.”
