Ferguson also gave a vote of confidence to Moyesâ€™ early weeks as his successor, revealing how he rang him after his only defeat so far at Liverpool.
â€śThe Liverpool game was agony,â€ť he said.
â€śI spoke to David after the game and I told him that we had gone there 20-odd times over the years and weâ€™d played worse than that and won games there. And I canâ€™t believe the criticism of United in that game.
â€śI thought David was right â€“ they did play well. Yeah, maybe they could have done with a goal, but in the context of my experience going to Liverpool â€“ they hardly got into our box.
â€śSo I was a bit frustrated by that game â€“ I thought we deserved more. But they won well against Palace, which was a difficult game. Many times over the years teams have come to park the bus across the penalty box like that and they were very difficult to break down."
