“The job at Manchester United came right out of the blue. They had really good values, and when I was chosen I fitted those values”
David Moyes was given the intimidating task of succeeding the great Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United after the Scot’s retirement in 2013, having excelled during the previous 11 years at Everton before being chosen by Ferguson himself. If that represented an unenviable challenge, Moyes refused to be deterred and soon made the rare move – for a British coach – of heading to La Liga to manage Real Sociedad, continuing to educate himself by learning about another footballing culture at a time when the game has continued to evolve.
In an exclusive interview with The Coaches’ Voice, Moyes revisits joining United amid interest from rival clubs, and the footballing philosophy he has sought to adapt.
