Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he thinks David Moyes will succeed as Manchester United manager given time.
Moyes replaced Sir Alex Ferguson – who won 13 Premier League titles in 27 years – in July but is struggling to emulate the Scot, with United currently seventh in the Premier League.
“When a person has been at a club for such a long time, it’s always a void created when he goes,” said Wenger.
“But I believe Moyes, if given time, will do that perfectly.”
“You need time and patience,” said Wenger. “You need to be in a strong club. [Moyes] is in a strong club and I think he will be given time to do it.”
United take on second-placed Arsenal at the Emirates on Wednesday with 14 points between the two sides, and the Old Trafford club are nine points off the Champions League places.
