Sunderland manager David Moyes has urged Manchester United to keep their faith in Jose Mourinho despite a poor start to the season, according to the Mirror.
Moyes was sacked as United boss after just a year in charge. The Scottish tactician believes Mourinho’s current struggles at United prove his disappointing spell “wasn’t just down to David Moyes.”
“The Manchester United job will be tough for anybody who takes it, whether it be Jose Mourinho or Louis van Gaal, David Moyes, it’s always going to be a tough job, because you’re following probably the finest manager in our time,” Moyes was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“Manchester United need stability, and it’s a football club that has always trusted itself, trusted its managers, believed in their managers, and certainly given their managers time to do the right job. It’s a great club.
“If you don’t mind I don’t want to get too in deep with Manchester United, because I don’t really want to get involved where I say this or that about Manchester United.”
According to the Mirror, the Portguese tactician spent over £140 million on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
United have been in disappointing form of late, winning just two of their last seven games. The Red Devils succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Fenerbahce in the Europa League during the week and were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Burnley last weekend.
Man Unite take on Swansea City this weekend in the Premier League as they look to return to winning ways.
