Manchester United boss David Moyes reveals that he will not return to Everton on scouting missions due to the "animosity" he receives from fans.

Manchester United boss David Moyes has revealed that he will not return to Everton on scouting missions due to the "animosity" he receives from fans.

The Scot, who spent 11 years at the club, took former Toffees favourite Marouane Fellaini with him to United last summer, while a move for Leighton Baines has also been heavily touted.

Moyes takes the Red Devils to Goodison Park on Sunday expecting a hostile reception from the home supporters after being booed for the return fixture at Old Trafford in December.

"I went to see Everton [play] last Saturday at Sunderland, but I've not been back to Goodison this season," he told reporters.

"It's nearly a year since I left. I've just felt that it wasn't the right time to go back at this moment in time. Time is a big healer.

"I think there was animosity at the way we would have liked to have bought a couple of the players. But some Manchester United players go to Everton, so there is reverse."

Kickoff tomorrow is scheduled for 4.10pm.
