A former charge of David Moyes says the sacked manager's career is far from over and expects the the 50-year-old will return to football soon.

Moyes was sent packing from Manchester United just 10 months into his six-year contract after his time at the club, which amounted to just 52 games, was dominated by poor results.

The defending champions suffered four defeats from their four meetings against arch-rivals Manchester City and Liverpool, the first time that's happened since the Premier League began in 1992.

The former Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane who played under Moyes at Everton, says the sacked manager will soon bounce back.
