David Moyes commends Solskjaer's handling of Man United

David Moyes believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has all the tools he needs to lead Manchester United to the Premier League title this season.

The additions of England winger Jadon Sancho and France defender Raphael Varane, as well as the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, have heightened expectations at Old Trafford, where the league trophy was last won in 2013.

Moyes, who succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as Man United manager after that success but only lasted 10 months, feels Solskjaer has been given the time and resources he lacked, as well as the players, to break United's nine-year drought.

He said: "I think Manchester United will always have to be competitive and try to win trophies, try to win the Premier League – that's what that club does.

"They've got a good balance of youth and experience in the squad. I think Ole's been given a really good chance to build a squad and a team and I think he's doing a good job.

"He's got a team that is more than capable this year of winning the Premier League.

"I see it as a huge opportunity to manage the biggest club in the world. But I don't blame anyone else other than myself. I needed to win more games.

"At the biggest club in the world you have to win the games and unfortunately I didn't win enough.

"Ole's doing a really good job. I think all managers at any club would ask for some time and if you get that chance it certainly helps you build your squad and get your thoughts over to your team."

On Sunday afternoon, Moyes welcomes his former club to the London Stadium to face his in-form West Ham team.
