David Moyes has rejected the suggestion that the presence of his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United’s matches is making his job more difficult, ESPN
Ferguson has been a regular feature in directors’ boxes at United’s home and away games, including in Tuesday evening’s Capital One Cup semi-final first-leg defeat to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. The loss was United’s third in a row after defeats by Swansea City in the FA Cup and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
Sir Bobby Charlton and Bryan Robson were with Ferguson in the stand and Moyes believes such experienced figures are a benefit to the club. “I can only see Alex as a great sounding board for me, he’s there to help,” Moyes said.
“So is Sir Bobby, he’s terrific,” Moyes continued. “Bryan Robson is at the training ground regularly and I find the three of them terrific.”
Moyes meanwhile remains confident United’s form will turn around, insisting that he has endured spells of bad results before in his career and can see an improvement on the horizon. “I’ve been here before and done it before and I just sense that it’s just on its verge of turning,” Moyes said. “We’re about to get a bit better.
“If you’re going to be in this job, you’ve got to win, the last few games I’ve not won, going through a difficult time, it’s part of football management. It’s never going to be an easy ride.”
