Ex-Man Utd boss David Moyes insists Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has tools to bring Premier League title back to Old Trafford

WEST HAM boss David Moyes believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can be the man to win the Premier League title for Manchester United.

The Red Devils manager is yet to win a trophy at Old Trafford since taking over from Jose Mourinho in December 2018.

Expectations have been ramped up following the signings of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer.

But ex-Man Utd head coach Moyes, whose West Ham side face Solskjaer and Man Utd on Sunday, believes the Norwegian can do what he failed to do in bringing the title back to Old Trafford for the first time since 2013.

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.”

Moyes succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson at Man Utd but was fired before the end of his first season.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has started well in his pursuit of a first Premier League title as manager of the club, with his side sitting top of the table with 10 points from their opening four games.

However, the same cannot be said for the way they have kicked off their European campaign.

United were beaten 2-1 by Young Boys in the Champions League on Tuesday night as they paid the price for Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s sending off.

Ronaldo hit the ground running on his return to Europe with Man Utd as he scored inside 15 minutes.

But it was not enough as Young Boys turned it around in the second half, netting the winner in added time after a horror backpass from Jesse Lingard.
