Jamie Carragher has backed outgoing Everton manager David Moyes to do a “great job” at Manchester United.

The Toffees boss is set to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford hot seat at the end of the season.

Carragher, who will retire later in May, has faced Moyes’ Everton side on many occasions over the past 11 years.

And the 35-year-old reckons the Scot will be a success at the newly-crowned Premier League champions.

“I think it does a little bit more, he’s obviously been a top manager – his record is there for all to see,” said Carragher.

“They’ve got another top manager in David Moyes, I’m sure he’ll do a great job there. I’m sure everyone is looking at it and seeing how it will go; maybe it will give other people a chance to get in there if there is maybe a bit of uncertainty at the club.

“But Manchester United are probably aware of that as well so I’m sure they’ll be doing everything to stop that.”

Carragher also played down the chances of him coming out of retirement, as United legend Paul Scholes did in January 2012.

“No, I don’t think so. The manager has known for a while that I’m retiring, so I’m sure he’s got plans in place and different players that he wants to bring in, ideas of what he wants to do.”
