Peter Schmeichel: "David Moyes has been at Everton for more than a decade on limited funds and he’s done a fantastic job. You look at him and think stability and longevity — that’s an important thing for United.”
Denis Law: "David has done a marvellous job at Everton. Alex had won the European Cup Winners’ Cup with Aberdeen but was not experienced in the European Cup either and, as we all know, he went on to win it. I think there is a time for all managers to be the first to do something and Moyes’ record has been excellent."
