Everton boss Moyes: Fergie ban will not unsettle Man Utd

Everton boss David Moyes doesn't believe Sir Alex Ferguson's touchline ban will affect Manchester United.

United boss Ferguson will be pitch-side for the clash with Everton on Saturday evening.

But he will have to watch from the stands for United's next two clashes after he was punished for comments he made about referee Alan Wiley.

Moyes said: "It is important a manager gets the chance to be on the touchline if he wants so I do think it is significant if a manager is banned.

"But there are some managers who sit in the stands and are quite happy to do so. Alex sits in his seat and can sit back and enjoy the game because he has got a really good team.

"In the main they win so he can sit back, unlike some other managers.

"We are jumping up and down on the touchline trying to motivate and keep getting the right result as much as we can. I don't think it will be too big a hindrance to Alex. He's experienced and I'm sure he will be happy to sit in the stands."
