The Scot has overseen United's worst beginning to a season in more than two decades since arriving at Old Trafford but his former pupil Coleman feels he has what it takes to get the reigning champions back into the top section of the Premier League table.
"Just from my time with him, all I can say is he has been a top manager and he has done so well with Everton," Coleman told reporters.
"He got the job deservedly - he was recommended by Sir Alex (Ferguson) himself - so I think he will definitely turn it around. It's only early days, only a few games into the season, so I am sure he will."
