Steve Davis hopes Nick Powell can push on under David Moyes
Steve Davis is hoping that the appointment of David Moyes at Manchester United will mean our former youngster Nick Powell will get more of a chance to break into the first-team squad. Moyes will leave Everton this summer to take over from the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, who is retiring at the age of 71.
Powell made his mark at Old Trafford, scoring on his debut against Wigan and playing in the UEFA Champions League, but a succession of niggly injuries hampered his progress in his debut season.
Davis is pleased that another British manager has been given the opportunity to take charge of the one of the biggest clubs in the world, and the Crewe boss is hopeful that Moyes will, like Ferguson before him, give young players a chance.
Steve said: “It is great that a British manager has a chance to take charge of one of the biggest clubs in the world. Manchester United are a great club and they are always prepared to spot potential and give young players a chance.
“Sir Alex spotted Ronaldo as a 17-year-old and transformed him into a world class player. I’m sure David will do the same and hopefully he will nurture Nick (Powell) and start to introduce him to the first team.
“I wish David Moyes and Nick all the best for next season and it will be interesting to see how thinks develop.”
