EZE­QUIEL AS VIDIC COVER

Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

– 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.

Thick

“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.”
