David Moyes willing to help with Everton boss search as Michael Laudrup and Malky Mackay remain coy

Roberto Martinez is the favourite to take over at Goodison Park

Departing Everton manager David Moyes said he will do everything he can to help chairman Bill Kenwright find a suitable replacement for him - as two potential candidates remained coy on the subject of taking over at Goodison Park.

Moyes's final match at Everton after 11 years in charge ended in a 2-0 win over West Ham yesterday.

However, as the Scot prepares for a new chapter in charge of Manchester United next season he is willing to guide Kenwright along the tough task of finding a replacement.

"I hope people will think the chairman made a good decision then [appointing Moyes in March 2002] and I am sure he will make a good decision now," Moyes said.

"The chairman took a gamble at that time, giving a young British manager an opportunity to work so he needs a lot of credit for that.

"I think the difference now is when I took over it was maybe a bit easier to bring in someone a little bit less experienced.

"Maybe now where Everton are that might not be quite the case but if he wants me to help I'll help him with whatever he wants.

"I'll do everything I can to help him in what he chooses to do next."

Both Cardiff manager Malky Mackay and Swansea's Michael Laudrup have been linked with the upcoming vacancy and gave little away as they appeared on the BBC's Match of the Day last night.

Mackay said: "It's certainly very flattering to be linked to such a job like that but I've got something that we've built and we're really looking forward to coming into the Premier League.

"I've got an awful lot of hard work over the summer."

Laudrup added: "It's always flattering when you're being connected with clubs but I've had a great season with Swansea and we have another very important next year.

"It's some big shoes there as well. He created a team who can play in different ways so it will be some quite big shoes - not as big as the Man United shoes but still big shoes to fill."
