Moyes: Barkley can be a star

David Moyes has tipped Ross Barkley to follow Wayne Rooney into the England team ahead of throwing the teenager into Everton's potential FA Cup banana skin at Cheltenham.

Ross Barkley: David Moyes has no doubts about the youngster's ability

The 19-year-old midfielder is set to start Monday night's third round tie, where Everton will aim to avoid a giant-killing, and it will be a chance for him to prove his ability.

But Moyes has no doubts about Barkley's skill and thinks it is only a matter of time before the youngster replicates the rise to stardom of former Everton sensation Rooney.

"We have to remember Ross is a young boy and we're bringing him on," said Moyes in the Daily Mirror.

"He missed a bit of football but I will continue to edge him nearer to our first team.

"The boy is going to be a very good player, and I have always thought he will play for England but we must be wary."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
