"He’s been with Moyes ever since and I’m sure they’ll want to prove a point as well and show how good they are. I’m sure it will be exciting for everybody looking on to see how it goes.
"I think it will be strange for everyone on the first day of the season to not have Sir Alex there. But there will always have to be someone else to take that mantle and David Moyes and Steve Round will do as well as they possibly can. Everyone will be watching on with a lot of interest to see how it goes."
"My experience of Steve Round is he’s a great coach, who is enthusiastic as well and I think, over the years to come, he’s sure to develop into a great asset to the club."
