Wilkins insists Moyes right man for Man Utd

Former Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins feels David Moyes is the right man in charge.

Last night's derby defeat to Manchester City has heaped more pressure on the Scot.

But former Chelsea coach Wilkins told talkSPORT: "David Moyes had done a magnificent job at Everton, and he was the perfect choice to go in at Old Trafford.

"It is just very unfortunate that they weren't active enough in the first transfer window they had. Had they been, we wouldn't be seeing them in the same sort of problems now.

"David Moyes is still the right man for the job though," he added. "They just didn't bring in enough players of the quality that Manchester United need.

"They will have to spend a lot of money over two or three windows. I don't think there is a quick fix. This is not going to be solved over one window, it's going to be two or three.

"The United squad has to be revamped."
