Mourinho: Man Utd will give Moyes time to build big team

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United will give David Moyes the time needed to get the club back on the rails.

On Sunday, Chelsea will play United at Stamford Bridge sitting nine points above their rivals.

Mourinho told the London Evening Standard: "I don’t think David is under pressure. The pressure is something virtual. It is something that comes from the media as a consequence of not having the best results.

"The most important thing in all of this is not the pressure that comes from the outside, it’s the reality of the inside. My feeling, which is based on years of communicating with Sir Alex and some inside information, is Man United are not happy, but they are calm. They trust David. David trusts them.

“Are the players blaming the manager and thinking ‘I am safe’? No. The players don’t feel that. They feel all together on this. The manager is calm and they are thinking this is our manager for the next two-three-four-five years. So they’re all together and are going to rebuild again a big team.

“The bad results will finish. They will get back on track, probably too late to win the League because they’re too many points behind the leader.

“The gap is difficult to recover but David has a fantastic job. He’s in probably unique conditions to be stable and to do his work well and achieve success sooner rather than later.”
