Blackburn boss Allardyce: Moyes, Everton perfect fit

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has paid tribute to David Moyes and Everton ahead of their opening day meeting.

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has paid tribute to David Moyes and Everton ahead of their opening day meeting.

In the past week Martin O'Neill has resigned at Aston Villa and Steve Coppell has quit Bristol City, for differing reasons, but Moyes is one of the longest-serving managers at the same club.

"It is a rarity now and Everton are extremely fortunate to have kept David where he is because of the work he has done and how hard he has worked to turn the club around from what was a difficult position when he took over," said Allardyce.

"David and the club fit very nicely and they are reaping the benefits of stability and the backing of a manager and good working relationships.

"It is something that lots more clubs in the Premier League, and certainly the Football League, should take notice of because without that stability you are not going to bring any sort of success to a club."
