BECKHAM BACKS MOYES
Former Manchester United star David Beckham says that manager David Moyes is someone who will do well at the club when he is given the time. Moyes took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, who stepped down from his role after 26 years in charge of the club, in the summer.
Results, however, has not been great and United find themselves with a fight to even finish in the top four. There has also been a consensus that this United squad needs a major rebuilding in several areas of the pitch. This led to the breaking its transfer record for the first time since 2008 to bring in Juan Mata from Chelsea.
According to the manchester united football news website, the midfielder has been signed for a club record £ 37.1 million, while Moyes has been promising more signings in the summer. Such signings will help improve United's play on the pitch according to Beckham, who also says that Moyes should be given time. The Scot did extremely well for more than a decade at Everton, but he did not manage top players like he now does that United. The club has been linked with even more names like Diego Costa and Luke Shaw as transfer targets in the summer. They have reported transfer budget in excess of £ 100 million.
"I think that David Moyes is a great manager, but it takes time. You know he's joined a club like Manchester United, biggest club in the world, one of the biggest clubs in the world, and there's a transitional period. People talk about it being a tough season. I think the fans believe in Moyes. The fans believe in everything that he believes in. It's just about winning games," said Beckham, who also thinks that the competition have also grown.
The arrival of Jose Mourinho back to Chelsea changes the whole dynamic according to the 38-year-old.
