Manchester United’s Phil Jones has leapt to the defence of new boss David Moyes.
The Scot succeeded compatriot Sir Alex Ferguson over the summer, following the Red Devils idol’s retirement.
His start to life at old Trafford has not bee easy, with transfer window failings, a stuttering start to the new season and a rumoured falling out with star striker Robin van Persie all leading to criticism being aimed at the ex-Everton chief.
But, Jones says that Moyes has made a fine start to his spell at United, and believes that his new manager is the right man to take the club forward:
“There’s been a little bit of his input in training and stamping his mark on what he wants – maybe we pass the ball slightly more.” He told the Daily Star.
“But that’s just his view on the game and I think it’s worked really well.”
“David’s a very passionate manager and he wants to achieve great things for the club. Hopefully, the players can help him do that.”
Jones has been a key part of Moyes’ first-team since taking control at Old Trafford.
However, the versatile enforcer may be away from the first-team for the next few weeks after suffering an injury during the defeat to Liverpool at Anfield prior to the international break.
Is David Moyes the right man to tae Manchester United into the future? Or is he out of his depth?
