Everton legend Howard Kendall admits he never had contact with Manchester United boss David Moyes when he was in charge at Goodison Park.

Kendall has welcomed the appointment of Roberto Martinez as Moyes' successor.

"This is a new era," Kendall told the Daily Mail. "Martinez has brought in players he knows. The support will show him the patience he needs, and so will the boardroom. I don’t think they expect to win the title.

"But Martinez has won the FA Cup and the fans would like to go back to Wembley.

"I’ve not had a conversation with him yet, but I’ve had contact. The previous manager (David Moyes) never wanted any association with me because he wanted to do it himself. No problem, I accept that. The current manager has invited me to the training ground and I’d love to go."
