Man Utd icon Ferguson: I suffered at beginning of season just like Moyes

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."
