Manchester United manager David Moyes remains adamant that he was the right man to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson, despite a tough start to his Old Trafford tenure.
The 50-year-old, who was identified by Ferguson himself as the perfect candidate to take over at United this summer, has only managed to secure seven points from his opening six Premier League matches with the reigning champions.
However, Ferguson defended Moyes in an interview with American broadcaster Charlie Rose this week, prompting the current United boss to insist that the club made the right decision at the end of last season.
"Manchester United is a good club," he was quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News. "I am sure they know they picked the right man for the job.
"Sir Alex was part of that process as well."
It's still unclear whether Moyes, the former Everton coach, was the only manager on United's shortlist to replace Ferguson.
A host of big-name coaches were linked to the vacancy, including Jose Mourinho, but Ferguson and United were convinced that Moyes was the best man for the position.
