Sheringham, whose best moment in a United shirt came in scoring the equaliser in the incredible 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich, does not envy Moyes' position as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor.
"I think David Moyes has got a tough job. To go in there and manage top players is hard.
"We won't know how well he's doing until they go a couple of games without winning and all of a sudden the pressure is on and then you've got to show your metal.
"At the moment things seem OK, but with a little bit of pressure we'll see what he's really made of."
