Manchester United transfer news: Who are David Moyes' new coaches?

Who are Steve Round, Jimmy Lumsden and Chris Woods

With Mike Phelan, Rene Muelensteen and Eric Steele departing the club after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, new Manchester United manager David Moyes has started to leave his own imprint on the Premier League champions.

So who has he decided to bring in to sit alongside him in the Old Trafford dug-out?

Steve Round

Age: 42

Role: Assistant manager

Player history: A full-back of great promise, Round’s ambitions for on-pitch success were cruelly extinguished by injury at just 25, forcing him to retire after only nine appearances for Derby County.

Coaching career: After hanging up his boots, Steve became a Rams coach under Steve McClaren, who he later worked with for both Middlesbrough and England. A first-team coach position at Newcastle followed in 2007, before replacing Alan Irvine as Everton’s assistant manager a year later.

Jimmy Lumsden

Age: 65

Role: Coach

Player history: Lumsden began his career at Leeds, playing only a handful of matches, before representing Southend, Greenock Morton, St Mirren and Clydebank.

Coaching career: The Glaswegian famously discovered Moyes as a young player at Celtic and, ironically, linked up with him when the younger Scot took charge at Preston North End. Both men then moved to Everton in 2002, where their partnership blossomed in the top-flight.

Quote: “I wouldn’t say it’s friendship all the time. We’re close, but I’ve got to be truthful and say part of the reason I think [he likes working with me] is because we don’t agree a lot of the time.” – Lumsden on Moyes.

Chris Woods

Age: 53

Role: Goalkeeping coach

Player history: A former Rangers star, Woods also played for Nottingham Forest, QPR, Norwich City, Sheffield Wednesday and Southampton. He earned 42 England caps between 1985 and 1993.

Coaching career: The 53-year-old began his second off-field career in 1998 by taking up a coaching position under Walter Smith at Everton, where he was tasked with the development of their goalkeeping stable. Years later, in October 2011, he was employed by the USA national team, linking with Toffees stopper and former Red Tim Howard.

Quote: “He's been fantastic for my career. He's one of the best in the world and I don't say that lightly. He's fantastic with a tremendous reputation.” – Tim Howard on Woods.
