David Moyes has brushed off recent criticism by stating ‘I’m best manager for Manchester United’, the Daily
Moyes is confident Manchester United got it right when they chose him to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson as manager. “Manchester United is a good club,” he said. “I am sure they know they picked the right man for the job. Sir Alex was part of that process as well.”
United head to Sunderland on Saturday looking to avoid a third successive Premier League defeat, something they have not experienced since 2001. It is anticipated Wayne Rooney will have recovered from the shin problem that kept him out of Wednesday’s Champions League draw with Shakhtar Donetsk.
However, as United did not return to the UK until Thursday evening, and are not due to train until Friday afternoon, Moyes could offer no injury bulletin. United face a team who have been plunged into turmoil following manager Paolo Di Canio’s sacking.
Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs has also defended Moyes by stating that the players have no excuse for their worst start to a season for 24 years. “I can’t put my finger on what’s happened,” said Giggs. “We have just not played as well as we can both individually and as a team.”
