Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has warned the current gaffer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, about the Man Utd job.
Moyes took over the Red Devils job in the summer of 2013 as a replacement of Sir Alex Ferguson amidst the massive expectations and hype.
Of Course, the Scotsman was unable to fill the big shoes of his predecessor and it was always going to end in only one way. And it did.
Now, talking to the Mirror, Moyes looks back on his time at the Old Trafford, the expectations surrounding the job, and what it takes to be a Man United manager:
“It is a tough job,” said Moyes. “You have seen how tough it has been for myself, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho – very experienced managers have found it difficult.
“I think it will be another tough season for Ole, but he is trying to do everything to get it right. I hope he is successful. But there are massive expectations.
“When you become Manchester United manager you are expected to win every game. And when you win the game, you are expected to have done it with style. Then when you win, you are expected to have scored plenty of goals as well.
“Ole will be aware of that and know he has to do well.”
There’s no doubt that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aware of what is expected of him and the club of this stature.
The Norwegian has decided to go back to the old values and sign young and hungry players who have the skills and talents to succeed in the long term.
We have already completed the signing of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka who fit that mold and David Moyes approves this change by Solskjaer:
“They have now chosen to sign some young players, and when you look back they signed Wayne Rooney from us at Everton aged 18. Cristiano Ronaldo was also 18 when he joined, so over the years they have had a policy of signing young players and many of them have been the best up-and-coming future stars.
“I think Man United just need to follow their values of old.”

Hopefully, Solskajer’s time at Manchester United will go a lot better than David Moyes. Unless he decides to put on the videos of Phil Jagielka’s art of defending…
