Man Utd boss Moyes expects jeers from Everton away fans

Manchester United boss David Moyes expects some jeers from Everton away fans tonight.

Moyes knows there's anger about his interest in Leighton Baines.

"I'd never be surprised by football supporters, but I think Everton's are well aware of what was done at their club," said the United manager.

"The Premier League has been going just over 20 years, and they had a top 10 finish maybe once in the first 10-year period. In the second, we finished in the top 10 on a regular basis. I think if someone really looked at it, they would understand and hopefully realise that I helped push the club in the right direction.

"But I would not be surprised (if there was some flak). I had a great rapport with the fans at Everton, but things would not surprise me, because I have got to do a job for Manchester United, while they have to support their team, which they have always done.

"We were not happy when we lost Joleon Lescott to Manchester City, so I totally understand (anger over the Baines bids) and have no qualms about it at all. That is football, and if it happens, it happens."
