Man Utd legend Neville: Insulting to suggest Moyes could lose job

Manchester United legend Gary Neville is confident manager David Moyes will be given time to get things right.

Neville wrote in the Mail on Sunday: "My view is simple: David Moyes deserves to have the same period of time that every Manchester United manager has had.

"I don't care what Chelsea or Real Madrid do in sacking their managers after winning trophies. Manchester United should be different and stay true to their values. And even if United didn't qualify for the Champions League, which would be a huge disappointment, I would maintain that view.

"People may say: 'That's rubbish. United were champions last year and they can't not be in the Champions League. This is 2013 not 1985.' Well, I'm sorry, but for me Manchester United are timeless.

"As a club they stand against the immediacy of modern life. And there is nothing to suggest that the Glazer family will not uphold those same values.

"They handed David Moyes a six-year contract and everyone who believes in traditional principles in life should be applauding that. So I don't even want to answer the questions about David Moyes's future.

"I think it's an insult."
