Ex-England international has played for both Everton and the Red Devils.
Everton midfield player Phil Neville has backed David Moyes to be a success in his new role as manager of Manchester United, reports Sky Sports.
The Toffees manager was named as the successor to Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford dug-out last Thursday and will start his role in the north west later this summer.
And Neville, who used to play for United before Moyes brought him to Goodison Park in 2005, is in no doubt that the Scot is the ideal person to take over from the retiring Ferguson.
When asked if Moyes would be successful, Neville said: “100 per cent. He has got all the traits that every great Manchester United manager needs. He is a top man.”
Moyes, 50, has been in charge of Everton for 11 years now, having previously coached Preston North End, during which time the Glaswegian has taken charge of 517 matches, winning 218 of those contests while losing 160 games, giving him an overall win percentage of 42.
