Moyes - I Needed More Time

Moyes - I Needed More Time

Recently sacked of his role as manager of Manchester United, David Moyes has revealed that he believes he needed more time in the position having taken the reigns over from Sir Alex Ferguson. The Scot feels his 10-month spell was unfortunate, but he has learnt a great deal from his time at England’s record league title winners.

“I believe I’ll be a much wiser and more knowledgeable coach and manager from the short time I had at Old Trafford.

“It was unfortunate I wasn’t given more time to succeed. It could well be that gone are the days of long-term planning at United.”

The 51 year old says he is considering his options as he has received job offers from a number of clubs. The former Everton manager was accused for poor training drills, as well as ultimately failing to retain the backing of the dressing room. Many raised their eyebrow at the appointment, citing Moyes’ lack of trophies in ten years at Everton as a main reason for concern, but with Louis van Gaal now taking charge after the World Cup, Manchester United fans will be expecting a swift return to success as well as Champions League football.
