“I thought it was tremendous that Sir Alex Ferguson came out and said the things supporting Rafa and in a way had a go at the board, because it’s the board who make the decisions…It [the Liverpool situation] is ridiculous. Sir Alex has stood up because he is very much part of the LMA [League Managers Association].”
And the Everton gaffer went on to say:
“It might need to be the managers who need to interview the board and the chairmen, rather than the other way round.
“The secret as a young manager is to have a chairman who will help you and not get too high when you win or get too low when you lose.
“I feel that nowadays, with so many billionaires coming into the game, they may be thinking, ‘We’ve been successful in our life so we should have instant success.’ There can only be one or two winners of competitions every year, which means the majority aren’t winning.”
Some sensible comments from Moyes, but will the opinions of an Everton manager be welcome at Anfield?
