But he warned it will take Moyes aback the enormity of the responsibility.
Ferguson said: â€śI think the enormity of the club, he will soon realise that anyways.
â€śThe global brand and number of sponsors we have, he has to fit into that. I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s an issue though and the most important thing is the team.
â€śHeâ€™s got a good squad of players and he will want to add to that Iâ€™m sure himself, he will have his own ideas and thatâ€™s good. He will be fine.â€ť
Indeed, the retiring boss has left Moyes with something totally different to work with than he had back in 1986. Indeed, the whole football club is nothing like the one he walked into â€” it is a rampant money-making commercial machine.
But Ferguson pointedly noted: â€śThe priority is the football team. Without the football team, they would not have all the sponsorships. We all know that here. There is no doubt about that.â€ť
