New Manchester United manager has spoken for the first time about taking the job and the former Everton boss revealed the extraordinary circumstances in which he inherited the role from his recently retired predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson.

– Manchester United manager David Moyes.
It was a really strange situation for me. I had no idea whatsoever. I knew nothing at all about it until Sir Alex gave me a call and asked me to come to his house.
I was expecting him to say "I'm going to take one of your players" but the first thing he told me was that he was retiring. I said: "yeah, when?" He was never going to retire. He said "next week" and his next words were "and you're the next Manchester United manager".
I was shocked but also incredibly thrilled that I was given the opportunity to manage Manchester United.
He added that everyone knows the "manager before was incredible, somebody everybody in football looks up to. There's probably no better".
"He comes from a great list of Scottish managers; Stein, Shankly... and Sir Alex is certainly up there," Moyes said.
New Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed that Wayne Rooney is not for sale after facing the media for the first time in his Old Trafford reign.
"Wayne is not for sale," he said. "He's a Manchester United player and he will remain a Manchester United player."
Rooney's future has been the focus of much speculation this summer and has cast a huge shadow over the early stages of Moyes' tenure as he replaces Sir Alex Ferguson.
Manchester United's incoming manager David Moyes will give his first press conference at Old Trafford today.
The former Everton manager is bound to be asked about Wayne Rooney's future at the club, and the pressure of stepping into Sir Alex Ferguson's boots.
Moyes may also announce the signing of Barcelona youngster Thiago Alcantara; something he is thought to have been pursuing.
He is also bound to speak about the appointment of Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville to his coaching staff at the club.
"It’s a great privilege," he said. "I hope I will be able to bring my experience to bear."
"It's no secret that I have been taking my qualifications and I see this as the first step in my future career.
"I'm really looking forward to working alongside David and the team."
The club have made the unprecedented step in a bid to clamp down on Manchester United fans trying to get tickets in home areas for Sir Alex Ferguson's final game as United manager.
Former England manager Fabio Capello admitted he had been taken aback by Sir Alex Ferguson's announcement:
– Fabio Capello
I met him a few months ago at the England Sports Centre and he told me he would carry on, so the news of his retirement surprised me.
I called him yesterday and he told me he has decided to go now because there is too much stress nowadays.
Always having to win something is very challenging, and he told me he wanted to go around the world with his wife.
David Moyes has said he will try to help Everton find a replacement manager after he leaves for Manchester United:
