Cape Town - Newly appointed Manchester United manager David Moyes is set to appoint four of his backroom staff from Everton at his new club.
According to the Guardian's website, Moyes is set to appoint Phil Neville, Steve Round, Chris Woods and Robbie Cooke - all four having worked with him at his previous club, Everton.
Neville, who played nearly 400 games for United, is set to become first-team coach, replacing highly-respected Dutchman Rene Meulensteen who opted not to stay on at the English champions.
The 36-year-old Neville, Moyes' captain at Everton, had earlier expressed interest in taking over as manager at Goodison Park.
With Meulensteen leaving United, four of Alex Ferguson's senior backroom team will have departed the club. The assistant manager, Mike Phelan, goalkeeping coach Eric Steele, and chief scout Martin Ferguson - Fergie's brother - have all left.
Round, who has been Moyes’ assistant manager at Everton since 2008, will take Phelan's job at Old Trafford, while Woods is in line to take over from Steele, and Cooke - the chief scout at Everton - to replace Martin Ferguson.
Alex Ferguson, who retired earlier this month, will remain at United as a director and club ambassador.
