– Sir Alex Ferguson
When we discussed the candidates that we felt had the right attributes we unanimously agreed on David Moyes. David is a man of great integrity with a strong work ethic. I've admired his work for a long time and approached him as far back as 1998 to discuss the position of Assistant Manager here. He was a young man then at the start of his career and has since gone on to do a magnificent job at Everton. There is no question he has all the qualities weexpect of a manager at this Club.
The outgoing Everton boss David Moyes has said he "wasn't planning to leave" the club, as he faced the media for the first time since he was named as the new Manchester United manager.
