David Moyes has vowed to leave Everton in the best possible shape as he departs from the club and has suggested he will offer his advice on who should replace him.
The outgoing Everton boss, who was appointed to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford last week, has been visiting United's Carrington training ground but reiterated that he will be on hand to help the Blues during their period of transition.
The Scot has offered to consult Everton chairman Bill Kenwright about finding a new manager following his decade-long tenure at the club, with officials prefering internal candidates such as Phil Neville to the experienced Roberto Martinez.
He is quoted in the Liverpool Echo as saying: "Bill and the board feel as if there’s a pretty good structure in place and if they ask for my advice I’ll give it. But they can decide whether they follow the same path or maybe move in a different direction."
"I’m going on holiday in about a week’s time," Moyes added, "but I’ll go into Finch Farm for a couple of days next week and just make sure everything is in place for the incoming manager whoever it is. I’ll make sure everything is as ready as it can be."
Moyes may be busy preparing for his first whirlwind season at the Red Devils, with the futures of Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand remaining in doubt, but he reiterated that he would like to be remembered as a manager who helped Everton to progress.
"I’d like to be remembered as someone who did a hard working honest job because that’s what the football club stands for. It was a club that needed a bit of stability and I hope it’s grown and what we’ve tried to do has helped it.
"Lots of things have hopefully improved and got better. I’m pleased with how the club has moved forward on the field and hopefully it continues to do so."
