Moyes begins work as Man Utd boss but maintains Everton role too

David Moyes has started work as Manchester United manager, the Daily Telegraph has reported, despite not officially finishing up as Everton boss until the beginning of July.

Moyes took charge of his final game as Everton boss on Sunday, a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea, and admitted he would be assuming his new duties on Monday, meaning he will be effectively managing two Premier League teams for the moment.

Everton do not have a successor to Moyes, who spent 11 years at Goodison Park, in place, but Moyes revealed he would be willing to help the Toffees’ owner, Bill Kenwright, in the search for a new permanent manager.

I’ll probably be doing two jobs for the next week or so,” Moyes said, adding: “I’ll go into Finch Farm [Everton’s training ground] some of the days next week and make sure everything’s in place for whoever the incoming manager is. Most of it is anyway, but I’ll just make sure that everything’s as ready as I can leave it.

Moyes bows out at Goodison with Everton in sixth place in the Premier League table, 518 games after first taking charge. Everton began Moyes’ tenure with a 2-1 home win over Fulham, taking an early lead through David Unsworth, with Duncan Ferguson also on the score sheet in March 2002.
