West Ham boss David Moyes has addressed the difficulties that Erik ten Hag is facing at Manchester United this season.
However, the struggles experienced so far this season are some that previous managers at the club, including Moyes, might be able to relate to.
Jose Mourinho, United’s manager from 2016 to 2019, has recently stated that certain players and people within the club mean a manager ‘will never’ succeed there.
However, Moyes has suggested otherwise, as the West Ham boss believes that with more time, Ten Hag will be able to make his tenure at Old Trafford successful.
“I don’t want to make too much comment about Manchester United,” he said ahead of the Premier League clash between his side and United. “But I hope they give the manager time to get everything in place that he wants to do and give him every opportunity to be successful.
“It’s a great football club, with great players and great traditions. There are so many good things about it, and obviously, the supporters there will be looking for something a little bit more.
“I’ll obviously expect them to give you a really tough game. I can’t speak about Manchester United, all I can say is they’ve got really good players, and I hope we don’t catch them on a good day.”
Ten Hag will be appreciative of the comments from Moyes but will be looking for no less than three points at the London Stadium.
The Reds earned a positive draw away at Anfield last time out but need to get back to winning ways ahead of their Boxing Day clash with Aston Villa.
Moyes, however, is hoping his side can emulate their 1-0 win against United from last season, which would mean they’d overtake The Reds in the Premier League table.
“When it was Sir Alex’s teams it was incredibly difficult to win any games and the games at Old Trafford were amazing with the crowds and atmospheres,” added Moyes.
“I’m hoping we can give them as good a game as we did last year, and if we can win, it would keep us in a really strong league position. We’ll keep trying to do that.”
