Today at Old Trafford

Thursday 9 May

17:58 Formula 1 driver Mark Webber, a surprise United fan (or at least admirer) has also passed comment on today’s events: “In Australia, I had absolutely no idea what Sir Alex or football stood for in terms of how strong it is in the UK. But I don’t think there has been another individual who has had the power that he has had on one sport and club. I would love to meet him one day and shake his hand. I met Bobby Charlton once and it was a real highlight to shake his hand. There is such history at the club, it’s very special. Sir Alex is irreplaceable but I hope Moyes does well.” (MF)

17:46 Chelsea interim manager Rafa Benitez has backed Moyes to succeed at United: “He is a good manger with a good team, he will compete at the top and win trophies with a big club. It is not easy to find someone like Ferguson but he has experience in the Premier League, he knows the players, he knows the club and what it means in the Premier League, time will tell.” (MF)

17:36 Our colleagues at MUTV have just interviewed former Reds full-back Denis Irwin, who has welcomed Moyes to Old Trafford: "I think David will be very similar to Sir Alex, a tough old Scot from the same mould. This has come from Sir Alex and Bobby Charlton's recommendation, this is going to bring stability which is important to the club. Wisely the club have listened to the manager and the heirachy and now we've got David Moyes, I'm sure he'll do a fantastic job." You can read more from Denis on later this evening. (MF)
