Recently retired Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson believes that the Red Devils can retain the title under David Moyes, according to the Metro.
The former boss, who was in charge for an incredibly successfully 26-years at Old Trafford, has backed United to turn things around after their worst Premier League start in 14 seasons.
Under Moyes the current champions have looked a shadow of the side that strolled to domestic glory last term, but they have won two of their last three games, prompting speculation that a change of fortunes may be on the horizon.
And now Ferguson has added his voice to those who claim United are still contenders for the Premier League title this year, citing the club's rich history for famous comebacks as evidence.
"We had bad starts to the season many times," Ferguson said.
"We are the only club in that league that can come from behind to win the league because of our history."
The much-celebrated manager also took the time to defend the content of his new autobiography, which was released last week. The book has angered some for it's exerts that criticise the likes of David Beckham and Roy Keane.
"I wrote the book for the fans, to help them understand why I had to make certain decisions," he said.
"[It was] not for the press, that was a book to help people understand how difficult the job is at Manchester United. It’s a massive job, it’s the biggest in the world."
