Sir Alex Ferguson has backed the current Manchester United boss David Moyes who is under the scanner after United’s extremely poor start in the ongoing Premier League.
United is currently out of top 10 in the League points table. They have been defeated thrice in their first 6 League games and things have completely fallen apart for them. But, Ferguson has got full faith in the management skills of Moyes and he believes that his compatriot will be able to put the Red Devils back on track.
Talking to an American TV channel yesterday, Ferguson said, “I had chosen him as my successor and I am backing him. I have got full faith in him. He will get the team back on track eventually.”
When asked if there is any chance of him returning to management at some point of time in future, Ferguson said, “No. I will not come back. I took that decision after giving it a deep thought. The timing was great for me and I left the scene as a winner. Now, I am excited about my post retirement life.”
When asked about Wayne Rooney who is doing decently for United this season, Ferguson said, “He has got back to his peak and that’s nice to see. Last season, he wasn’t quite up there. He was off the mark. But, he is looking completely different this season. His hunger is back and that’s great news for the team.”
Meanwhile, after two successive League defeats, there is some good news for David Moyes. His team showed some improvements in its last night’s Champions League game against Shakhtar Donetsk. The Red Devils managed to stop the Ukrainian club on draw and secured 1 point from the game.
United’s next Champions League game is against the Spanish club Real Sociedad. That game will take place at Old Trafford on 23rd of October.
