Moyes still frustrated not making it at Man Utd

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes admits he remains frustrated not making more of the job opportunity.

Moyes felt Old Trafford was a ­perfect fit for him after 11 years at ­Everton when he got the chance to follow Ferguson.

He told the Mirror: “I would have loved to have done much better. It was a great ­opportunity and a job I felt I fitted.

“I am more ­disappointed with myself that I didn't make it work. I believe I am much better than what I showed. I had to do better. There were ­mitigating ­circumstances. When you look at it now, what Sir Alex got from the squad to win the league is remarkable.

“What I didn't get was time.

“Do I believe United would be in the Champions League now? Yeah I do, if I had been in charge.

“Do I believe we would have a much more stable club? Yeah, I do. I have also got to admit in the short time I was there, I had to win more games."
