Manchester United boss David Moyes says he's explained to Patrice Evra why they're seeking a new left-back signing.

Moyes insisted, Evra was told what the new manager was trying to do, and supported it completely.

"Pat was fully aware of what we were doing and he was for it," said Moyes.

"He said we always have to have competition at Manchester United; we always have to be getting better. Plus, he said I had to make sure I did what is right for the football club."
