Moyes: I'm The Right Man For The Job

Manchester United manager David Moyes says he was the right man to succeed Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford hot-seat.

Things have not gone especially smoothly for Moyes so far this season, with United hovering in mid-table in the Premier League, with three defeats to their name already.

They recently lost at home to West Brom for the first time in nearly 30 years, to go with painful defeats to Liverpool and neighbours Manchester City.

Moyes has warned that more harsh lessons could still be learned this season, and has even prepared the ground for the shock eventuality of the Red Devils bombing out of the Champions League early.

But despite his travails, Moyes is adamant that he will prevail, and that United will prove to have made a shrewd appointment when signing him from Everton.

Fergie gave his backing to Moyes when it became clear he would be the new United gaffer, claiming the club was “in good hands”.

And Moyes has recalled his predecessor’s support to stem the whisperings of doubt.

"Manchester United is a good club," Moyes said on Friday, amid growing concerns that he is yet to cultivate a winning momentum at Old Trafford.

"I am sure they know they picked the right man for the job. Sir Alex was part of that process as well."
