West Ham United manager David Moyes admits that he will 'always regret' leaving Everton for Manchester United after an 11-year managerial stint with the Toffees.

David Moyes has admitted that he will 'always regret' leaving Everton for Manchester United.

The 56-year-old took over from Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford dugout following an 11-year stint on Merseyside, but lasted less than a year before being replaced by Louis van Gaal.

Moyes, who is now in charge at West Ham United, has since revealed that he does not regret taking the United job in 2013, but will always look back on the Everton team that he had put together.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, Moyes said: "I think I'll always look back and regret leaving Everton because of the team and the players I had built at that time.

"But I'll never be regretful for joining Manchester United or doing what I've done. I think in football we all make decisions – Andy Gray will tell you as much as anything – some work for you, some don't work for you.

"I think on the journey of being a football player or football manager you're never always going to have good times. You're always at times going to have ups and downs."

Moyes won 218 of his 518 games in charge at Everton between 2002 and 2013.
