By Mikael McKenzie: With the top three clubs in Britain starting the 2013/14 campaign with new managers, it is the biggest opportunity for the Manchester dominance of recent years to be broken. Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the end of this season’s campaign, former Everton manager David Moyes was installed in hot seat at Old Trafford. While Moyes has all the ingredients to succeed, will he be able to continue the dominance we have seen from United in recent seasons.
David Moyes arrival at Manchester has seen a shake-up with the backroom staff, Goalkeeping coach Eric Steele and assistant Mike Phelan have both left the club. Moyes will be looking to replace the backroom staff with his own personel.
Sir Alex Ferguson has warned David Moyes the biggest challenge will be the “enormity” of Manchester United when taking over as manager and said his successor will decide if Wayne Rooney should stay at the club, Ferguson does not know if Moyes could persuade Rooney to stay. “I have not spoken to David about that. I’m sure he will address it, ” Fergie said.
Whether David Moyes can lead the club like Sir Alex has done for the past 15 years remains to be seen, but you can certainly count on the former Everton manager to give it a go.
