David Beckham backs David Moyes at Manchester United


Manchester United David Moyes has come under fire and scrutiny early in his tenure at Manchester United. Through nine games, the defending English Premier League Champions are sitting in eighth place with 14 points. Who ever replaced Sir Alex Ferguson was in for a rough road, replacing a legend is never easy.

For now Moyes has at least one significant Manchester United figure in his corner, David Beckham.

“I played with him [Moyes] during my loan spell at Preston and I’ve seen him progress as a manager over the years at Everton,” said Beckham, via ESPN FC.

“I’m really happy for him that he got the job at United because he’s a really great person and he’s a talented manger. It’s good to see him there and the United fans are behind him well which is a good thing.

“Whoever took over after Sir Alex Ferguson left it was always going to be a difficult time, a transitional time, but at the end of the day, it’s like when a player leaves, Manchester United are still Manchester United.

“Sir Alex has retired, but David Moyes has taken over, United always move on when they sell players and I’m sure they will with Moyes as manager now.”
