Newcastle legend Shearer: Moyes must succeed Ferguson at Man Utd

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer feels Everton boss David Moyes is the man to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Shearer explained in The Sun: "There is plenty of talk, understandably, about Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola and undoubtedly they would be leading candidates.

"But for me I would go half an hour up the road and offer it to David Moyes.

"This past weekend he has celebrated an amazing 10 years at Everton.

"A decade in which he has turned strugglers striving to avoid the relegation trapdoor into a solid top 10 outfit.

"United will want a seamless transition to ensure that the success created over Ferguson's incredible reign continues.

"I genuinely believe Moyes would provide this.

"A manager who knows the Premier League and knows how to win in it.

"A tough Scot with a similar background to Ferguson, he is a proper manager of men."
