David Moyes labelled "strong enough" to save United

David Moyes has received the public backing of Manchester United legend Eric Cantona, despite the fact that his side were smashed 3-0 at home to Manchester City last night.

The result at Old Trafford was the Red Devils’ tenth loss in the Premier League during Moyes’ debut campaign in charge and leaves them sitting in seventh place, 12 points away from fourth. However, despite the cries for the former Everton boss to be relieved of his duties with immediate effect becoming ever more frequent, Cantona believes that the situation will fix itself if given the time.

According to the Daily Mail the former United striker, who netted 64 goals in five years at the club, said: “I'm sure Manchester United will come back very soon.

“I think he's signing because he has a long-term project so we'll see, we'll see in the future.

“At the moment it's not very good but maybe next year it will be great and everybody will remember what they said and say "I was wrong" but I think he (Moyes) is strong enough under pressure.”

It’s a vote of confidence for sure, but one that won’t make a shred of difference to the powers that be in Manchester. Certain reports claim that United were already mulling over potential replacements well before the devastating result suffered last night. He’ll likely be given until next season to change his team’s fortunes, but the future is most certainly looking grim.
