Man Utd boss Moyes wanted Meulensteen to stay

Manchester United boss David Moyes admits he wanted Rene Meulensteen to stay.

The Dutch coach left United last week to become Guus Hiddink's No2 at Anzhi.

"I need to say a big thank you to the former manager's old staff - Rene Meulensteen, Mike Phelan and Eric Steele, who have left the club. I asked Rene to stay but he felt it most fair that he moved on and let me stamp my own authority on the team," revealed Moyes.
