Donovan tips Moyes to thrive

10 May 2013 06:22

Former Everton loan signing Landon Donovan has backed new Manchester United manager David Moyes to be a success at Old Trafford.

The LA Galaxy man had loan spells under Moyes at Goodison Park during the MLS off-season in 2010 and 2012.

The former Preston manager faces the unenviable task of following in the footsteps of Alex Ferguson, who won 13 Premier League titles in his 26 years at United, but Donovan believes Moyes is more than capable of rising to the challenge.

"He'll be fine," Donovan told Goal.com.

"I have no doubt that he'll do well there.

"It was, in my opinion, a pretty obvious choice.

"He is - across the board, by players, fans, staff, referees - very respected. I think he'll do a fantastic job. I'm very happy for him."

Moyes has a history of fielding American players, dating back to Brian McBride at Preston in 2000, while Tim Howard - a former United player - has been Moyes' number one goalkeeper at Everton since 2006.

However, Donovan does not see the Scot going out of his way to cater to Americans at United.

"He's got a job to do," Donovan said.

"Whether someone's American or Argentinean or Bosnian or Albanian or English, he's going to pick the best players he can."
