David Moyes confident of being successful with Manchester United
It’s been a tough start for David Moyes as he looks to fill the rather sizeable boots of Sir Alex Ferguson, although the Scot wouldn’t want it any other way as he looks to improve fortunes at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have lost at Anfield and the Etihad this season, while a 2-1 home reverse against West Brom saw the team slip into the bottom half of the table, although Moyes insists he’s the right man for the job and is confident of winning silverware this term.
“Manchester United is a good club,” he said. “I am sure they know they picked the right man for the job. Sir Alex was part of that process as well.”
Ferguson recently revealed that he has no intention of returning to football management after rumours of the knight taking the United reins again, while Moyes denied that Ferguson’s book launch and theatre tour will prove to be any distraction.
“Anything Sir Alex does is good for Manchester United,” said Moyes on Friday. “He was an incredible manager. His success was fantastic.
“I don’t see it being negative in any way at all.”
Manchester United head to Sunderland this weekend hoping to take advantage of a team with their own problems, although Moyes will not be taking the game lightly, having plenty of respect for opposite number Kevin Ball.
“We go up there now with a new manager again, Kevin Ball, but he has been there [for a while].
“He’s very experienced, he knows the club and he knows the players.
“He’ll have watched all the games and he’ll know what he has to do in this short-term period.
“Whether he gets the job or not, nobody knows but Sunderland look as if they played quite well in the last couple of games.”
