The Press Conference
After the club had announced David Moyes as their new manager, he decided to call a press conference the following day, to avoid any confusion about him leaving his beloved Everton and joining Manchester United in a shock move.
J - Journalist
DM - David Moyes
J - Hi David, Steven from BBC Sport here. Firstly, welcome to Manchester. Why did you decide to leave Everton for a club of a similar level in the Premier League.
DM - Thanks Steven. I decided to leave because it was an offer I couldn't turn down. Although I have to disagree, United are at a much higher level than Everton, just look at the trophies and league positioning compared to Everton. I was at Everton for a long time, but couldn't go much further, so this offer came at a perfect time.
J - So, does this mean you disapprove of Everton and the way they are run?
DM - No, no, not at all. Everton are a wonderful club, and without them I wouldn't be where I am today. However, they just don't have the ability, in terms of football and finance to be able to compete with Manchester United. Nevertheless, Everton will always have a place in my heart.
J - Mike, Sky Sports News. What will you be looking for regarding transfers, and what are your targets for the season?
DM - As Everton are an excellent club, I will be certainly trying to bring some of the players with me. I know Ferguson was a fan of Baines and Fellaini, and this could be a good chance to fulfill his wish and bring them over. I don't plan to change the squad too much though, they have done brilliantly as they are. Maybe that little boost that is needed to get the twentieth title though. My target. Win the league. I want that for then anything, as do the fans.
J - Hello David. ESPN News here. How do you feel about the staff set-up here. Do you plan to bring in any of your staff from Everton? And will you be using the same style of tactics?
DM - The staff set-up here is one of the best in the world. Although I may bring in some new faces, possibly some from Everton, I don't feel the need to change much. Manchester United are a totally different side to Everton, so new tatics will be needed, which we will try out during pre-season.
J - Okay, thanks for your time today. Good luck with Manchester United, we wish you the very best.
