Gill confident he leaves Man Utd in good hands

Departing Manchester United chief David Gill is confident he and Sir Alex Ferguson are leaving the club in good hands.

With Ed Woodward beginning his new role, the transfer business will be in new hands this summer as David Moyes will, no doubt, look to bring in some fresh talent.

"Ed is taking over from me and is doing an excellent job," added Gill. "I'm more than happy to give him any advice and help on that area [transfers].

"David is coming in and will work with Ed and evaluate the squad and what is needed with all the relevant people. The outlook is very positive and I'm looking forward to a very bright future."

When asked about any specific advice for his successor, Gill replied: "That's a good one. I think to try and retain the values and the spirit of Manchester United, which is about it being a family club - even though it's a huge, multi-national brand these days."
