Former Manchester United boss David Moyes was pleased for Brendan Rodgers over his success with Liverpool last season.

Moyes says it demonstrated that home-grown coaches can thrive.

"The route through to the top for a British manager is a long process and maybe having a job abroad at some of the clubs and getting recognized for your work there, might be the way in the future," said Moyes. "But I hope I won't be the last one to be given a chance to manage on of the top ones.

"Brendan has come in and with the time he's been given has been able to turn round Liverpool and I think it's really important for British mangers that he's done that.

"I've spent most of my career in rivalry with Liverpool but part of me was glad, because Brendan was given the opportunity to go in there and change things around and because of that Liverpool have got their strategy in place and a good future."
