QPR boss Harry Redknapp feels Manchester United made the right decision to replace Sir Alex Ferguson with David Moyes.

Redknapp has been doing battle with Ferguson for the best part of 20 years.

And he feels Fergie’s retirement will leave a big hole in the game.

Redknapp said: “He will be a great loss to the league and football.

“He is a fantastic manager, but a top bloke as well who always had time for young managers if they phoned up — no matter what level they were at.”

Redknapp is delighted for Moyes, believing the Scot to be ideal for the job.

He added: “He’s the perfect choice and I think it is good that they have taken a British coach and have given him a chance. They have not just gone abroad but taken someone who has done his apprenticeship.

“It gives great hopes for everyone out there in all divisions.”
