DAVID MOYES STARTED the post-Alex Ferguson era at Manchester United on Monday as the Premier League champions’ new boss arrived at the club’s training ground for the first time.

United are under new management for the first time since 1986 following Ferguson’s retirement and Moyes went to meet the club’s players and staff at Carrington in order to outline his plans for the future.

Although he does not officially start work until July 1, Moyes intends to get down to business before then as he looks to make a smooth transition to life at Old Trafford.

“I’ll probably be doing two jobs for the next week or so,” Moyes said after Everton’s defeat at Chelsea on Sunday.

I’ll go into Finch Farm (Everton’s training ground) some of the days next week and make sure everything is in place for whoever the incoming manager is.

“Most of it is anyway, but I’ll just make sure that everything is as ready as I can leave it.”

Moyes, who left Carrington in a car with Ferguson and kit man Albert Morgan, also has to finalise details of his backroom staff at United, with assistant coaches Mike Phelan and Rene Meulensteen waiting to discover their futures.

He has indicated there will be no drastic changes, although Everton assistant manager Steve Round, coach Jimmy Lumsden and former United player Phil Neville, who will leave the Toffees in the close-season, have all been tipped to follow him to Old Trafford.
