Peter Schmeichel: 'If we should have any regrets at United, it's that we only gave Moyes 7 months'
- Schmeichel believes Moyes would've adapted after a poor start at United.
- Peter reckons David had the 'personality & understanding'.
- Unfortunately, Moyes was left on his own.
Legendary Man United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has his vision of appointing managers at the former club and he holds a truly unpopular opinion in David Moyes's regard.
Speaking on Bein Sports, Schmeichel said: ''If we should have any regrets at Manchester United, it's that we only gave David Moyes seven months. I think we should have given him more time, accepted that results weren't going to be what we hoped and playing would have been a little different.
''I believe he would have grown into the role. He has the personality and the understanding. He had so many things to learn and no one to learn it from. He was left to run the football department on his own. From the clubs perspective we should never have dismissed him.''
It's okay if someone else feels the same way. At the time, however, sacking Moyes seemed an apparent decision. In just seven months, Moyes cleared the previous backroom staff out, had a lecture in crossing the ball against Fulham, told Rio Ferdinand to watch Phil Jagielka's highlights and that's just to name a few not looking at the league standings.
Fans'll word it better:
In my time Schmeichel was the best United keeper I have seen, but he does talk some garbage as a pundit. Moyes was never the right appointment, he couldn’t talk the talk never mind walk the walk— Aaron McC (@Arnie1878) February 10, 2019
We'd be in league 1 if that useless mong was still manager— Ryan Woodford (@woodymufc) February 10, 2019
Didn’t he sack all of Fergie’s backroom staff? Also bringing in coaches like Phil Neville for the biggest job in English Football meant he was always fighting a losing battle!— Stuart Finch (@StuartF1984) February 10, 2019
The same David Moyes that wanted Rio and Vidic to play like Phil Jagielka.— Waqas (@waky7) February 10, 2019
What a joke. The job was way too big for Moyes. He would made Utd even worse.— Shak (@Shak1986) February 10, 2019
