Everton boss Moyes welcomes his FIFTH Liverpool manager rival

Everton boss David Moyes has welcomed the challenge of taking on Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.

The former Watford, Reading and Swansea manager becomes Moyes' fifth Anfield adversary with him having previously done battle with Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez, Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish in his 10 years at the Goodison Park helm.

Moyes told evertonfc.com: "When I took over at Everton I was certainly young and inexperienced as far as the Premier League went.

"The managers I was facing at Liverpool have been incredibly experienced - European Champions and top, top managers.

"And the new manager at Liverpool is a top manager as well - but young now - and probably in his own way a little inexperienced a bit like I was when I started at Everton.

"But Brendan did a great job at Swansea and more than deserves his chance at the top end."
