Premier League — 09 May 2013

David Moyes has been confirmed as the new Manchester United bossEverton boss David Moyes will be the Manchester United boss next season, after signing a six-year deal with the Red Devils.

The Scot will see out the season with the Toffee’s before joining up with his new charges on 1st July.


When Sir Alex Ferguson announced that he would retire as Manchester United boss it sent shockwaves around the world of football.

Everton boss Moyes was always frontrunner for the job and it took little time for a deal to be finalised.


The 50 year-old Everton boss is regarded as one of the most highly-rated bosses in the Premier League. He has an excellent reputation amongst his peers and predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson personally recommended him for the job.

Fergie tried to appoint Moyes as his number two over a decade ago, when he saw major potential in the former-Preston boss. No doubt, the veteran Scot will be working closely with the Everton boss to help him settle in at Old Trafford.


David Moyes did a very good job at Everton, on a very limited budget. For much of his time at Goodison Park the Toffee’s have been fighting for the European spots, instead of fighting relegation like under a number of his predecessors.

There are some questions marks about the Scot though. He did not lift silverware in his tenure as Everton boss and has very little experience of managing in European competition.


The appointment of David Moyes is one with a view to the long-term. The former-Celtic centre-back will provide stability and will know all about the club. Other candidates may not have offered such stability and longevity.


Moyes has a major chance to fulfil his ambitions of winning trophies with United and I very much doubt he will fail at Old Trafford. With Fergie backing Moyes from the director’s box I am sure that United will be in safe hands for years to come.

Will David Moyes be successful at Manchester United?
