Ex-Everton boss set to start work in the north west on 1 July.
Manchester United keeper David De Gea has hailed incoming Red Devils boss David Moyes, says the Daily Mirror.
The former Everton manager was recently announced as the successor to previous United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who has decided to call it quits at Old Trafford after more than 26 years in charge of the Premier League giants.
And with the Glaswegian set to officially start his new role in the north west on 1 July, the Spain international says that all the players at the club are eager to start working with Moyes ahead of next season.
De Gea himself has just enjoyed an excellent campaign between the sticks for the top-flight champions, culminating in the 22-year-old being voted into the Professional Footballers’ Association Team of the Year.
However the United No 1, who was brought to the club by Ferguson from Atletico de Madrid for a fee of £19 million in the summer of 2011, was also keen to point out that the United players would greatly miss the retiring Scot.
“We are saddened by the departure of Ferguson, but in comes another great coach with a different style of play, so we will try to follow along the same lines and with the same tone,” said De Gea.
“It’s a shame that he went, he was great. But now we have a new coach in David Moyes, who we still don’t know. We’re all waiting to get back there and see how it is with him.”
