West Ham boss David Moyes has warned Erik ten Hag, Mauricio Pochettino and co about one major “difficulty” they will face at Manchester United.
Moyes was the manager chosen to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Man Utd ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.
The Scotsman signed a six-year contract but he was sacked in April 2014. The Red Devils were seventh in the table when he departed.
Over the past few years, the likes of Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have had spells in charge of Man Utd.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked earlier this season and they are set to appoint his permanent successor this summer.
The likes of Ten Hag and Pochettino have been heavily linked with the Premier League giants.
Moyes has warned United’s next boss that it will be difficult for them to “find the same rhythm they found under Ferguson”:
“I keep hearing about Man United needing a top coach to make the difference. Man United have had Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal, who are two of the best coaches in the world — both excellent, both winners,” Moyes told The Athletic.
“One is an unbelievable coach, one a great winner. Man United have had a lot of top managers. Not putting myself in that category at all, but they’ve had some great managers.
“The difficulty for them now is to really find the same rhythm they found under Sir Alex, which when you look back now was incredible for their football club, it really was.
“You look back at a lot of the dynasties at football clubs — Brian Clough (at Nottingham Forest), Sir Bobby Robson at Ipswich, even Don Revie (at Leeds United).
“Howard Wilkinson told me, ‘If you’d spoken to me earlier, David, I would have told you anyone who goes to take these jobs tends to find it’s really difficult to make it work’.
“It wasn’t that I didn’t know that, but (…) because of the way Sir Alex approached me to take the job (…), it made it more personal, it made me feel like, well, yes, there’s a model here that they felt I could continue, that I would be the right person. And it wasn’t to be.”
