David Moyes was "slightly embarrassed" to be awarded the North West Manager of the Year award for 2008 earlier this week.

The Everton manager was recognised for the way he guided Everton to fifth spot in the Premier League last season, and although the Scot was delighted with the accolade, he thought others - namely Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson - should have been in front of him.

He said: "I was manager of the year but when you see Sir Alex winning the Champions League and the Premier League I am slightly embarrassed that he didn't get it."

He added: "If I was voting I would have voted for Sir Alex but nevertheless I am delighted and really pleased to receive the award.

"We have worked really hard to get into lofty positions in the last few years and we pushed hard last year to try and be fourth and I think people do recognise that.

"It is always great when you win anything but I am more keen on winning team awards.

"This was a team award really because the points total we got last year and the success we had was the reason I got the award."
