"I am the right man for Manchester United" - Moyes

David Moyes is confident he is the right man to lead Manchester United forward and believes he has the full support of the club despite a poor start to the season.

Moyes was appointed manager of United following Sir Alex Ferguson’s shock retirement with his predecessor having a big say in who should take over at Old Trafford, but his first few months have not proved easy.

United have endured a troubled start to the Premier League campaign – three defeats in six matches have left the champions 12th in the table – and there have been suggestions that the club could turn to Ferguson to rescue the situation.

Ferguson quashed any talk of a return during an interview with US TV network PBS earlier this week and Moyes has followed that by declaring he is the right man for the job.
“I think Manchester United is a good club. I’m sure they know they picked the right man for the job and Sir Alex was part of that process as well,” he told reporters on Friday.
United will look to get their season back on track when the travel to Sunderland for the Saturday evening kick-off.

The trip to the Stadium of Light comes on the back of successive defeats to Manchester City and West Brom but Moyes remains confident that he has the squad capable of turning things around.
“It’s an important game we want to win. We’ll pick a team that we think can get a result,” he explained.

“They’re really good players. They know themselves the standards they have set over the years and, together, we’ll work to get it right. I’ve got no doubt about that.

“Anybody who comes into a new job, you learn as you get on and as you go along. I’m doing that as well. I already knew I was coming to a place with really good players but we’ll also have difficult times as well.

“There is a long way to go in the Premier League. It’s a long season. You’ll see great changes as the season goes on. We’ll hang in there and get ourselves as close to the top as soon as we can.”
Sunderland are also going through a difficult time with Kevin Ball still in the hot seat following Paolo Di Canio’s sacking.
