Moyes has 15 years experience in professional coaching and has amassed a wealth of knowledge that has seen him boss Preston North End, Everton before taking the reins at United, a job that seemed like a poisoned chalice initially, but the Scotsman has engineered antidotal form as the club are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions.
