David Moyes: 'United job tougher than I thought it would be'

David Moyes has admitted that succeeding at Manchester United in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement is a harder task than even he ever imagined.

According to the Metro the struggling Scot conceded that he may well have bitten off more than he could chew when he took over the reigns at Old Trafford, following his side’s capitulation during the 3-0 home loss to Liverpool. The Red Devils’ appalling season sunk to new depths as they were hammered on their home turf yesterday, and they currently sit 7th in the Premier League with only nine games left to play.

After the aforementioned game Moyes took the opportunity to reveal that his job is even harder than he anticipated it would be. He said: “The job was always going to be hard. “Harder [than I thought]? Yes I would say so yes.”

The admission isn’t likely to be a surprise to any United supporter, with a vast majority of fans having doubted Moyes credentials since long before Christmas. However, this latest mauling at the hands of one of their most fierce rivals will surely have once again kicked the hornets nest.

It’s likely that Moyes will be given at least until the end of this summer to try and make the squad his own, but whether or not the patience of the board will endure much longer than that is another matter altogether.
