Current West Ham manager and former Manchester United boss David Moyes has admitted he wishes he had more time to manage the English giants as he believes he could have done better. The Scot was hired as United manager in 2013 but only lasted 10 months in the hot seat.
David Moyes has signed a six-year contract to become the new Manchester United manager in the summer of 2013 as he took over from Sir Alex Ferguson. The Scottish manager had been chosen as manager by Sir Alex Ferguson as the English giants hoped to continue to be a major force in domestic and European competitions.
Moyes won the FA Community Shield in his first game in charge of the club, although United endured a terrible season under his spell and as a result the Scot was sacked from his role before the end of the 2013 season -14.
Moyes currently manages West Ham in the Premier League and raised the club’s profile by leading them to the Europa League quarter-finals in his second spell at the club. The West Ham boss reflected on his time as United boss and said he had hoped to last longer at the club.
“At Manchester United I think maybe I needed a chance to grow. It wasn’t that I needed time in the Premier League, but I needed time at the club to find myself. and find out how I was doing. I just wanted to continue what Sir Alex had been doing. I couldn’t be Sir Alex, but I wanted to continue the model they had, developing young players, trying to play in a way that suited them. That was the idea,” Moyes said. Athleticism.
“I look back on it with great fondness, honored to have been offered a job of this magnitude. Unfortunately, I only had ten months. I think if I had been given a little more time, I could have done better, but in the end I can only blame myself because I needed to win more games,” he added.
