Rio Ferdinand is all smiles as he discusses the upcoming season.
He admits to having moped around in past summers, worrying about United's future but has decided to 'turn his frown upside down'.
Rio is laughing in the faces of all the doubters, which include bookmakers, who, although they have United top to win the league, the odds aren't all that better than those offered for Chelsea and Arsenal.
"I'm not going to get anywhere walking around with a long face," commented Rio. "That will only give pleasure to the 'haters' of United and I certainly don't want to feed into their bitterness. Positive thinking is the way to go. I've discussed it with the lads and we've decided, negativity doesn't do anyone any good. We intend to smile, play well and make sure we stay at the top. Barcelona was a bit of a bitter pill but it is in the past."
He also mentioned that the team members have vowed to behave well on and off the field which will result in no negative press. No candid photographs which can lower the morale of the players. Good clean football and a record breaking number of goals are the aims of Manchester United this upcoming season.
Great attitude Rio!
