It was confirmed on Thursday that Everton boss Moyes had signed a six-year contract to take over from the out-going Sir Alex Ferguson from July 1.
Former Old Trafford striking heroes Yorke and Cole backed the appointment, insisting that Moyes' managerial style and longevity at Everton had marked him out as the perfect successor to Ferguson.
Indeed, Yorke insisted that Moyes was a better fit for United than Real Madrid supremo Jose Mourinho, claiming the Portuguese tactician's short-stay mentality would not work at Old Trafford.
"Jose is a very successful man and of course a successful manager as well, but Moyes just seems to fit and has longevity," said Yorke.
"Jose moves around and gets the best out of his players; couple of years, two or three years and then moves on. That seems to be his style of management. But at Manchester United it's a longevity job, it's not a quick fix."
