Sir Alex Ferguson has distanced himself Manchester United, to give new boss David Moyes the best possible chance of success…
Ex-Manchester United manager of 26 years Sir Alex Ferguson, will move his office away from either the club’s stadium or training ground in order give new boss David Moyes the space he needs to succeed, reports the Daily Mirror.
Instead of working closely with the incoming Scottish boss, Ferguson will base himself in Cheshire, at the business headquarters of his son Jason.
It would be fair to say David Moyes has had a mixed start to his reign as United boss. Having failed to sign any proven world-class talent for most of the summer, the Scot has also had to deal with the ongoing Wayne Rooney saga, but remains adamant that the forward will stay at Old Trafford. The English striker has missed most of an awkward pre-season, that has seen United fall to embarrassing defeats to both Yokohama and a Singh XI.
At the weekend however, United secured an easy Community Shield victory against FA Cup winners Wigan, in what was Moyes’ first real match of note. Robin Van Persie scored a brace, and he will again prove vital to United’s title ambitions.
Ferguson does not want to add extra pressure to his successor, but remains available in a consultancy role should Moyes need help and advice.
Meanwhile, the new manager has promised fans that new signings are on their way.
