There aren't many managers in the world who are in a better position to be giving David Moyes advice in the current climate than the man who will be in the opposite dugout from the Scot at Old Trafford tonight.
And it would appear that Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola was all too ready to offer his struggling counterpart some food for thought concerning his position at Manchester United - even if the words were a little obvious. According to the Mirror the Spaniard was quick to warn the United boss that only wins would be enough to keep him in a job, following strong speculation that he could be replaced following the Red Devils' terrible season.
Guardiola, whose Bayern side are widely considered to be the best team on the planet at the moment, had this to say: “In the big clubs when you don't win, you are always in trouble.
"You have to look forward and win games. Here, in Spain, in Italy, you have to win in the big clubs.
"Manchester United, in the last 10 to 15 years, dominated the Premier League and Europe too, arriving in many finals.
"In the big clubs that happens. It happened with Bayern - last year we won everything and you have to try to maintain that level and so far we did it, at least in the league."
The words are unlikely to come as a revelation to Moyes, who has been largely harangued for the majority of his debut campaign with the reigning Premier League champions.
Despite having been dubbed ‘The Chosen One’ following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson last summer, the former Everton coach has seen his side produce inconsistent results on a far too frequent basis, and as such his job may be on the line at the end of the season.
