Two back to back defeats in the Premier League has many Red Devils’ fans thinking of gloomy days ahead. The former Everton boss has not had a ‘dreamland’ start to his United career with the club suffering its worst start in the league since 1989 when Ferguson himself was under pressure to start stocking the trophy cabinet.
Moyes who was handpicked by Sir Alex Ferguson himself had earlier stated that by no means this (United managerial job) was going be an easy task. A derby mauling was followed by an home defeat to West Bromwich Albion left many pundits wondering if Moyes was a wrong pick.
But quashing all negative views, Sir Alex himself has come forward and given his support to his successor In a television interview to an American broadcaster, Sir Alex was quoted as saying, “Moyes will do a good job for United, I’m confident of that. He was my choice to succeed me and I’m still absolutely behind him 100 percent. The club will also give their full support and he will be just fine. United are in good hands.”
