David Moyes has been confirmed as Manchester United's new boss, by an early accidental message on the club's official Facebook fan page. The message read:
Our sports editor Frank Dalleres:
Rooney was sued by Moyes, his former manager, over remarks in his autobiography, My Story So Far, originally released in 2006, though the pair are thought to have since patched up their differences.
The Everton manager, interviewed to be Ferguson’s assistant in 1999, has earned respect for his shrewd stewardship of the Toffees, where he is seen to have over-achieved under tight financial constraints.
Moyes, who is out of contract in the summer, has led Everton to nine top-10 finishes and four European campaigns in 12 seasons at Goodison Park, but his only trophy remains the third tier title with Preston in 2000.
