MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United on Thursday confirmed that Everton coach David Moyes will succeed Alex Ferguson on a six-year contract when he retires at the end of the current season. "It's a great honor to be asked to be the next manager of Manchester United,” Moyes said. “I know how hard it will be to follow the best manager ever, but the opportunity to manage Manchester United isn't something that comes around very often and I'm really looking forward to taking up the post next season.” Moyes went on to thank Everton management as well as its supporters: “Everton will be close to me for the rest of my life."

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."

Everton, meanwhile, has said the search for a new coach will begin immediately, with Wigan Athletic’s Roberto Martinez, Swansea City’s Michael Laudrup and Celtic’s Neil Lennon installed as early favorites, according to reports.
