Moyes Admits To Being Hurt

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes admits he was hurt to lose his job at the end of last season and should have been given more time at the helm in order to correct matters.

Moyes took over from Sir Alex Ferguson at the start of the 2013/14 season, but was fired after only ten months due to an inconsistent run of form and United dwindling outside of the top four.

“It was a step into the unknown and, looking back now, it was near enough the impossible job,” said Moyes.

“I was devastated to lose the job because it was something I felt I could make a real success of.

“We knew it was going to take time to make the necessary changes.

“It was going to take time to evolve.

“But we were in the process of making other important changes.

“In the end, I don't feel I was given time to succeed or fail.

Moyes admitted that he had been hurt by the nature of his dismissal, which was widely announced in the British media before the he received official confirmation from the club.

“In the end it was difficult for my family, the way we discovered - via the media - that I'd lost my job,” he added.

‘We have always tried to do things the correct way.

“I know it comes with the territory, and I know if you lose matches you risk being sacked.

“But how it affected my family made it hard.”
