Manchester United manager not emotional enough for Everton to effect him

David Moyes became Manchester United manager in the summer after being approached personally by Sir Alex Ferguson. Moyes’ contract with Everton was due to expire and he has repeatedly said there was no way he could turn down the job at Old Trafford, regardless of how he felt about the Merseyside club.

On Wednesday night, Moyes will face his former team for the first time, but he reckons he isn’t emotional enough to be bothered by the occasion.

“It could be an emotional evening but I am not that much of an emotional person,” Moyes said. “I’ll put it in the right place. The people I worked with at Everton were fantastic, the supporters were fantastic and the players were great. But I’ve got a new job now. I move on quite quickly.”
