BBC pundit, Mark Lawrenson, has said that David Moyes may be the answer to Manchester United’s problems this season.
United are dealing with familiar struggles this season, after starting off the league campaign with a comfortable 5-1 victory against Leeds United.
But defeats to Aston Villa, Leicester City, Liverpool and Manchester City within a few weeks have seen us fall to sixth position on the league table, nine points behind leaders, Chelsea.
David Moyes was brought in to take charge, after Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013, but it wasn’t long before he was relieved of his duties.
The former Everton boss has however become the toast of many football lovers in recent months, after making West Ham a formidable force in England again.
The Hammers sit third on the Premier League table, thanks to some brilliant performances, including a 3-2 win against Liverpool last weekend, and Lawrenson believes that with the absence of any decent managers out there at the moment, he may be just what we need.
Speaking to Off The Ball, he said, “Unless Manchester United are actually going to go and buy a manager, who are you going to get? If anybody at the moment, you’d want David Moyes, back would you not?
“I’m half-joking, but what I’m saying is you’d have him basically because he would sort all this out. He never really got the time there, and he never was going to get the time because he was the first one after Sir Alex Ferguson.
“He’d lost three of the back four within two or three days. There was a little bit of ‘you’re coming from Everton and telling us how to play’. I just honestly don’t know who Man United would go and get at the moment, I really seriously don’t.”
