I think the club are firmly behind Mourinho – Moyes
Former Manchester United manager David Moyes says he thinks Mourinho retains the full backing of the club, despite the poor start.
Moyes succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but was sacked 10 months into a six-year contract.
“I think the club are firmly behind the manager,” said the former Everton and West Ham boss.
“He’s been a winner, Jose, throughout his career. So I don’t see why that should suddenly change.”
Moyes, 55, says United’s comeback win against Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday showed the fans are also behind the Portuguese.
“It was a great result, any team that comes from 2-0 down,” added the Scot.
“But the one thing that happens at Old Trafford is the crowd gets right behind you, and is always supportive of the manager and the players.”
