Eric Harrison used to service the Manchester United youth team manager. He has said that current manager David Moyes looks like he is in need of help from former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who is still involved in the club in the form of a directorial role. United won the title last season by 11 points, but they trail current table leaders Arsenal by a similar number of points after a poor start to the season. After loss to Swansea in the third round of the FA Cup, United were beaten 2-1 by Sunderland in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final.
This has effectively left the club with only the Champions league as the means of winning a trophy in Moyes’ first season. Ferguson is still at the club in a directorial role and he has made it a habit of attending every match so far. There have been suggestions that he still has influence in the dressing room, which have been denied by Moyes. However, Harrison feels that the former Everton manager should consider approaching Ferguson in order to solve the current crisis at Old Trafford.
United are finding it difficult to score goals, which is something that they never struggled with during the Ferguson era.
“I’m 100% for David Moyes, I really am, things are going bad for him and all that. The look on his face when he’s on TV I feel so sorry for him. Sir Alex Ferguson will be having a word with him there’s no question about that, but he won’t be saying you’ve got to do this and that. He will do it nice and quietly. I think the pair should get together quite a lot and he should listen seriously to Sir Alex,” said Harrison in an interview to Sky Sports.
