'The difference between Solskjaer and me is that he's being given time' - Moyes defends Man Utd record
David Moyes has defended his Manchester United record, insisting that "the difference between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and me is that he's being given time".
The Scottish head coach inherited a Premier League title-winning squad, but he was unable to pick up from where Ferguson left off as results took a dramatic turn for the worse.
Moyes was sacked from his post after just 10 months in charge , with United sitting way down in seventh in the top-flight standings and well adrift of the Champions League places.
The 57-year-old is currentlyworking on the touchline at West Ham, who will come up against the Red Devils on Wednesday fresh from a 3-1 win over Watford last week, which ensured their Premier League status for another year.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer is nowthe man overseeing the United first team, and he is on the verge of guiding the club back into the Champions League after an impressive run of results in 2020.
Moyes is certain that he could have delivered the same kind of success at Old Trafford had he been afforded the same patience as hisNorwegian counterpart, due to the fact he also understood the club's policy of bringing through talented young players from the academy.
"It's a wonderful club and a brilliant place to be, and the biggest club in the world, for me," the West Ham boss told a pre-match press conference on Tuesday.
"It's always a special place to go and I'm looking forward to going back.
"Ole had a difficult start, but the difference between Ole and me is that he's being given time. He's bringing players in from the Academy, which Manchester United has always stood for.
"They've got some really exciting young players of their own now."
United will be aiming to bounce back from a heartbreaking 3-1 defeat to Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup when they meet the Hammers in midweek.
