Everton legend Kendall slams Moyes over manner of Man Utd move

Everton legend Howard Kendall has hit out at David Moyes over the manner of his departure to Manchester United. Kendall predicted years ago that Moyes would succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at United but he was disappointed with the ­manner of his departure.

"He had 11 years at ­Everton and while he didn't leave them with a bad team, he left them with nothing in terms of his contract," said Kendall.

"Maybe, when his contract was running down, he could have signed for another 12 months with a buy-out clause.

"That buy-out clause, which United would have had to meet, would then have been a tribute to Everton Football Club.

"Evertonians wanted Liverpool to win against Manchester United last Sunday - that's a first. I can't remember that happening before.

"And that's because they were ­disappointed at the way Moyes left the club. I know how they feel, because I mix with them and I speak at dinners which they attend and they tell me what they think."
