Kilbane backs Moyes to succeed at Manchester Utd

There is nobody better to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United than David Moyes, according to one of the few people to have both played alongside and under the Everton manager, Kevin Kilbane.

I am delighted, thoroughly delighted.

I have played under him and played alongside him at Preston as well.

He is a former team-mate and manager and I've got to say I am absolutely delighted. I think he is a top manager.

I've thought about it a lot and I don't think there is any manager that would be more fitting to go in there and work with the club, having Sir Alex Ferguson above him.

I am sure he will seek his advice along the way and there are not too many managers that will be too forthcoming in going and knocking on Sir Alex Ferguson's door. David Moyes would do that.

He is a strong character in his own right and what he has done at Everton has been a huge achievement.

He would work with Sir Alex Ferguson as well and I think it is a perfect fit for the club.
