“At the game yesterday he [Moyes] told people jokingly that he will have two jobs for a week or so.” Paul Tyrrell

David Moyes today visited Carrington for the first time since it was announced that he would officially take over from Sir Alex Ferguson on July 1.

He is still the manager of Everton but made the trip to get to know his new surroundings and according to Everton’s director of communications Paul Tyrrell, his visit has not caused any issues back with Everton.

Speaking to SportsDirect News, Tyrrell laughed off rumours that Moyes was in breach of contract by making the trip.

“I think we all need to calm down if we think David Moyes is in breach of contract,” he said.

“There are no more games to play for Everton between now and when he becomes United manager.

“He (Moyes) said he would be coming into Everton over the next couple of days to tie some things up and to sort out some logistics then he officially becomes United manager of 1 July. There are no issues for us.

“At the game yesterday he [Moyes] told people jokingly that he will have two jobs for a week or so.”

It is great to see that Moyes is already making moves to settle himself in the hot seat at Old Trafford as following on from Ferguson is arguably the hardest job to have ever existed in club football.

The fans are already chanting Moyes’ name and Giggs insisted he will have the full support of the squad. The early signs are certainly positive – exactly what Ferguson would have wanted.

What remains to be seen is what backroom staff Moyes brings with him from Everton with rumours circulating that Everton first-team coach Jimmy Lumsden may join him which would put would raise further questions around the future of Rene Meulensteen.
