David Moyes Insists He Deserved More Time At Manchester United


David Moyes feels he should have been given more time to handle the mess at Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson passed on the mantle to the former Everton manager following his retirement but the Scottish’s dream short lived as he managed just 10 months at the Old Trafford before being relieved of his duty.

United appeared to be still struggling to find a potential successor of Ferguson and went on to appoint Louis van Gaal who also seemed clueless at the club. The former Barcelona manager did deliver the FA Cup but United never looked convincing under his guidance.

Jose Mourinho then took charge but after two seasons nothing seem to have changed as the Red Devils are not even competing for the Premier League title any more.

Moyes said, “Do I feel I should have been given more time? Of course I do.

To go to a club like Manchester United and follow someone like Sir Alex after the time he had been there, to stay for 10 months…

“It couldn’t be a revolution at Manchester United, it had to be evolution. It had to take time. I wasn’t going to come in and change all the things Alex had done, but there were lots of things that had to be changed at the club.”

“You look at the way Chelsea and Man City had been doing things and changing things along the way – Manchester United had been winning because they had a special manager and a special group of players. But when that all changed, it was going to take time to find its way.

“I still think they’re having difficult times at the moment.”
