Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has shown his faith in his predecessor David Moyes after speaking out to share this belief that the club will be able to overturn their poor start to the Premier League season and once again add the title to their growing collection.
United have suffered at the hands of a versatile Premier League pool this season so far and after experiencing their worst start to a league season in 24 years, David Moyes has successfully managed to start to show the championship winning quality that many believe the Manchester club to hold, winning two of their last three fixtures.
Ferguson revealed that even though the club had suffered teething problems due to the change in manager following his retirement, “We are the only club in that league [Premier League] that can come from behind to win the league because of our history.”
The comments were made during a question and answers session that spanned from the release of his latest ‘tell all’ autobiography that has come under fire recently from former players due to the nature of subjects mentioned within the book but the questions soon turned to whether Ferguson believed that Moyes was still able to guide the club to glory.
Although the former United boss still has the belief that the club will be able to win the Premier League this season, it seems that bookmakers don’t share the same view, pricing the club at 10/1, placing them behind the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.
Manchester United currently stand in 8th place in the league after nine games and find themselves eight points behind leaders Arsenal, giving them a mountain of a task if they are going to be able to overcome their title rivals for the championship this season.
Could their poor start to the season mean that they have left it too late to mount a title push this season with the other clubs showing firm signs that they are looking to compete?
