Sir Alex Ferguson says David Moyes will prove his critics wrong at Manchester United.

Ferguson retains utmost faith in his successor.

"I know David has had a hard time over a couple of results.

"But I had plenty of bad results at the start of the season.

"I remember a few years ago when we lost 5-0 to Newcastle, the following Saturday we lost 6-3 to Southampton and then lost to Chelsea 3-1.

"The BBC ran a two-hour programme called 'The demise of Manchester United'.

"We won the league by nine points."
