Manchester United manager urged to seek Ferguson advice

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United manager David Moyes has been urged to seek out the advice of Sir Alex Ferguson as he bids to make a success of his first season at Old Trafford.

Moyes has endured an inconsistent start to his tenure with the Premier League champions, and saw his team trounced 4-1 against rivals Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

It was a humiliating afternoon for Moyes, as Manchester United side were outclassed in all departments by City, with Sergio Aguero scoring twice and Yaya Toure Samir Nasri also finding the net in a convincing win.

The Scot has now suffered defeats to Manchester United's two greatest rivals - Liverpool and City - in his opening two games, and former Old Trafford star Gordon McQueen expects the club's manager to have a private word with his predecessor.

“I will be surprised if he doesn’t seek out Sir Alex’s advice because he is there for things like that,” McQueen told Goal.

“Accepting advice is a strength, not a weakness. Sir Matt Busby was there for Fergie when he had a difficult start at United and you cannot turn your back on such a wealth of experience.

"Nothing that has happened this season has changed my mind and I’m still confident United will retain their title and have a good run in the Champions League.

“There is a long way to go and I’ve seen the folly of having knee-jerk reactions at this stage of the season so many times before.”

Next up for Moyes and Manchester United is another meeting with Liverpool, as the Reds travel to the Theatre of Dreams for the third round of the Capital One Cup.
