In 2014 Manchester United sacked David Moyes and with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the Scot says they were more patient.
David Moyes believes he was not offered the new Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was given time at Old Trafford.
On Wednesday, Moyes returns to his old club, as his West Ham team faces the chasing hand of the Solskjaer Champions League’s Premier League.
Moyes was ‘the chosen one’ seven years ago, the man hired as Alex Ferguson’s replacement on a six-year contract, but he only lasted 10 months as United missed out on qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in almost 20 years.
The former United striker Solskjaer returned after stinting with Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho in charge, initially on an interim basis, before being permanently appointed in March 2019.
United finished just sixth last season-and stayed outside the top four for most of this campaign-but Moyes claims Solskjaer is benefiting from a more patient approach from the club ‘s management (via Manchester Evening News).
“For me, it’s a wonderful club and a great place to be, and the world’s biggest club,” Moyes told reporters in his pre-match news conference.
“It is such a special place to go and I look forward to returning.
Ole was having a hard start, but the difference between me and Ole is that he’s given time. He is bringing in players from the academy, for which Manchester United has always stood. They now have some very promising young players of their own.”
