David Moyes the new manager of Manchester United

Can you believe it? I plain forgot to mention that David Moyes will be taking over the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. I have been pretty busy these past few days and I suppose that I should be excused for that…NOT! In any case, I am happy that they found a successor to Sir Alex Ferguson. It is not easy to find a replacement for such a legendary figure. David Moyes has some big shoes to fill. I have read in some news reports that he might even be bringing Phil Neville in as his assistant. This could be Neville’s return to Manchester United, a club he played in previously….one of Fergie’s Fledgings.

In any case, these quotes were on the Manchester United official website and I have decided to include them here.

Announcing his successor, Sir Alex Ferguson said:

“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 we expect of a manager at this Club.”

Sir Bobby Charlton said:

“I have always said that we wanted the next manager to be a genuine Manchester United man. In David Moyes, we have someone who understands the things that make this such a special club. We have secured a man who is committed to the long-term and will build teams for the future as well as now. Stability breeds success.

“David has tremendous strength of character and recognises the importance of bringing young players through and developing them alongside world class talent.  At United, I think David will be able to express himself.  I’m delighted he has accepted and I’m looking forward to working with him.”

So there you have it. Welcome Mr Moyes!
