Moyes Eyes Man United Return, Backs Van Gaal

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has insisted he would take the job if he was offered the Old Trafford hot seat again.

The former Everton and Real Sociedad boss was replaced at the club by Louis van Gaal after a disastrous 10 months in charge.


Speaking on The Clare Balding Show on BT Sport, Moyes said: “I wouldn’t have done anything different. I would have only done it different if I’d known it was 10 months instead of six years.

“My understanding was that I was going to a club which always looked after their managers, even when they were in trouble and it wasn’t going well, you got your time to sort things out. I was under that illusion when I was there. I had a great group of players who had recently won the Premier League under Sir Alex, but it was going to take time for that to change, evolve and of course there was going to have to be a changeover of players in time, but it couldn’t be done in 10 months.

“Would I take the job again? Of course I would. There are very few managers in the world who wouldn’t want to manage Manchester United.”

The Scot advised that Van Gaal should be given more time and that United shouldn't become a club that sacks the boss at the first sign of trouble.

“After Sir Alex the job was going to be very difficult," Moyes added. “It was going to take time to rebuild, it was a rebuilding job at Manchester United. You’ve got to remember David Gill left, he was a big influence at Manchester United.

"I think what Manchester United stand for is that they keep their managers, they’ve always supported their managers. 

I hope they stick with Louis van Gaal, he deserves more time. It’s still a work in progress for him, he’s made some signings and from my experience in Spain it will take time for players from abroad to settle in. So, I think they should stick with it. They don’t want to become a club which continuously changes their manager.”
