The Everton boss will take over from Sir Alex Ferguson on July 1 on a six-year deal and hopes to bring talented youngsters from the club’s youth ranks into the first team.David Moyes has revealed he plans to carry on Manchester United's tradition of bringing through talented youngsters into the first team when he takes over from Sir Alex Ferguson on July 1.
Moyes was confirmed as the man chosen to replace his fellow Scot on May 9, after agreeing on a six-year contract to move to Old Trafford when his deal at Everton expires at the end of the season, and the 50-year-old believes integrating promising homegrown players is the right way forward.
Speaking at an address to the Cambridge Union, Moyes is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "Manchester United have always relied hugely on young players and my priority will always be to promote these talents.
"It is the right way to go. We need to be producing better English players and we are working to find the solutions. My aim would be to develop these young English players and get more and more coming through.
"[However] There are issues to resolve. How do we get them more games at a competitive level? I like the Spanish model where there is a B team playing in the lower divisions. Could we implement the same here? That would be a starting point.
"Three years ago, I wanted to get the young Everton team into the Conference, as it would be a good place to compete. The FA told us we would have to start from the bottom - in division 27 or something!"
