Everton legend Ian Snodin has taken a swipe at the quality of David Moyes' Manchester United squad.
Moyes left Goodison Park to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer and spent £27.5m on taking Marouane Fellaini with him.
Snodin, who played over 350 games for Everton, told the Daily Star: "It was always going to be difficult for David Moyes. For anyone to replace Fergie, that's the hardest job in football.
"In a way I feel sorry for him. He has a difficult job even though they won the league last year. One or two of the squad were getting on.
"You look at some of players now and think 'are they better than what we've got at Everton?'
"This season they have proved they're not. I'm not putting that down to David Moyes because they have to look at themselves.
"They should wonder whether they are good enough to be associated with Manchester United.
"I'm sure the board will give him a bit more time. You don't keep a club like that quiet for long."
