Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer says David Moyes deserves the job at Manchester United.

Shearer wrote in The Sun: "I was really pleased with the appointment of Moyes to replace Sir Alex.

"I am glad the club went for a British manager who proved his worth in more than a decade at Everton.

"People are saying he has big boots to fill in going to Old Trafford.

"Believe me, the tougher job is the one that Robert Martinez has in trying to replicate what Moyes has done at Goodison Park."
