David Moyes’ revamping of Manchester United’s backroom staff is expected to continue with the arrival of Everton’s academy manager Alan Irvine at Old Trafford according to the Daily Mail
Moyes has already taken first-team coach Jimmy Lumsden and goalkeeping coach Chris Woods with him from Goodison Park as he prepares for his first season at United.
The Scot has overseen the exits of three key members of Sir Alex Ferguson’s staff in assistant manager Mike Phelan, goalkeeping coach Eric Steele and coach Rene Meulensteen.
Friends reunited: Alan Irvine looks set to join David Moyes at Old Trafford
Irvine was Everton assistant from 2002 to 2007 before returning to the club in July 2011 after three years managing at Sheffield Wednesday and Preston.
Former United and Everton midfielder Phil Neville is in the frame for a return to Old Trafford as part of Moyes’ coaching staff, but should Ralf Rangnick get the Everton job over Roberto Martinez then he would feature in the German’s plans.
It remains to be seen whether Moyes will attempt to take his Everton assistant Steve Round to Old Trafford.
