Manchester United have appointed Sir Alex Ferguson's recommendation David Moyes to replace the 71-year-old as manager at Old Trafford.
Moyes, out of contract at the end of the season, leaves Everton after 11 years in charge at Goodison Park.
The 50-year-old Scot has agreed a six-year deal and will replace Ferguson, who announced his retirement on Wednesday after 26 years, on 1 July.
"We unanimously agreed on David Moyes," said Ferguson.
"David is a man of great integrity with a strong work ethic. I've admired his work for a long time and approached him as far back as 1998 to discuss the position of assistant manager here.
"There is no question he has all the qualities we expect of a manager at this club."
