“Even Ferguson wouldn’t have won anything with this current squad” – Moyes
Moyes has found it tough in his first season in charge of the Red Devils, after succeeding Ferguson last summer and many pundits have argued that he inherited an ageing squad, with a few players over 30 and some players not good enough to wear the club’s colours.
“People are aware there is a squad that is a bit more ageing, so I think it would have been a tough season for whoever was in charge of Manchester United this year,” Moyes told national newspapers.
“And I actually think if Sir Alex was here this year it would be difficult for Sir Alex as well and I’m sure he would be aware of it.”
United are currently in seventh place, 18 points behind the leaders Chelsea entering this weekend’s games and Moyes admits that more is expected from him and the players.
He said: “It could have been the case no matter what this season, but it has been so un-Man United, which is why we have to look to continue a policy of building, improving, getting better and that’s what we’ll try and do.”
