Peter Schmeichel recently gave an interview and offered his thoughts on the state of affairs at Old Trafford.

The "legendary" goalkeeper did voice his slight concern with the impatience that the Manchester United Board have shown. He hopes that the squad can show the strength of character to turn things around from here on out.

The "Great Dane" went on to state that " The whole combination just didn't work". He feels that there was some sort of breakdown between the different departments within the Red Devils camp.

The Old Trafford legend feels that Ed Woodward would have to take some off the blame as well as Woodward’s inexperience did account for some of the misfortunes that United have suffered this season.

Schmeichel also feels that the backroom staff and the players should shoulder quite a bit of the blame as well.  

Schmeichel goes on to say that: "I think some of the players have been very disappointing. They just give up."

The 50-year-old feels that Moyes failed to adapt to the club's big stature and that was clear in Moyes' failure to delegate his tasks.

Schmeichel did also say that it was the sort of thing that David Moyes would have grown into had he been given the chance to turn things around.

The Dane also said that Moyes' tactical game was very uncharacteristic of Manchester United. He feels that the team has stated to play a very "defensive" game and that they try to stabilise the game before attacking.

The Red Devils legend however revealed that David Moyes is still a top manager and that he has always been held in great esteem by Sir Alex Ferguson even in Moyes' "days at Preston" North End.

The Dane also states that Moyes was seen as a potential candidate for the role of assistant manager under Ferguson. When asked if Moyes' sacking was deserved Schmeichel did however reply, " If you go by results, yeah."

When asked who his favourite was to take the hot-seat at Old Trafford the Danish goalkeeper said: "Ryan should get the job."

The Red Devils legend feels that what Manchester United need right now is getting back to being Manchester United and that they need someone who can stick to " tradition and history" as well as someone who will offer speed, tempo and imagination. Schmeichel also revealed his admiration for Giggs who was at the club even before he joined the Red Devils.

When asked about how he felt about some of the members of the well adored "Class of 92" making a return to United coaching staff, the 50 year old could help but to show how proud he was of them.

"To see that picture in the papers today was so rewarding," Schmeichel stated.

He also said how he feels that all of them had what it takes to be good managers. When asked if he would take up a coaching role at Old Trafford if interim-manager Giggs ever gives him the opportunity, the Dane replied assertively: "I would do it!"
