Former Manchester United football team manager David Moyes, who was sacked after just 10 months into the job, has said that he should have been given more time by the club.

Moyes was sacked by United in April. His successor, Louis van Gaal, took charge of his first Premier League game on Saturday, when United lost 2-1 at home to Swansea City.

United slumped alarmingly under Moyes, eventually finishing the season in seventh place, but the Scot feels that he could have proven himself a worthy replacement for Alex Ferguson if the club had shown more patience, Sport24 reported.

Moyes said that it was a step into the unknown and, looking back now, it was near enough the impossible job. He said that he was devastated to lose the job because it was something he felt he could make a real success of.

The Scot said that they knew it was going to take time to make the necessary changes, adding that it was going to take time to evolve. But, he said that they were in the process of making other important changes.

Moyes also said that in the end, he does not feel he was given time to succeed or fail.
