Abiston expects Moyes to back Man Utd youth

Former Manchester United fullback Arthur Albiston believes David Moyes will focus on youth.

Albiston was himself a former United apprentice.

"Any young player who has a United football education has ability and a great grounding," Albiston told the Manchester Evening News.

"There is some great talent out there and United have never been shy of giving lads their heads if they deserve it. I don't think David Moyes will be any different from Sir Alex Ferguson in that respect.

"They are both canny Scots and won't be putting their hands in their own pockets to bring in new players if there is quality ready to come through.

"Of course, United have to invest in the transfer market as well but they have always wanted to bring through their own products."
