David Moyes has backed Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to succeed at Old Trafford after Saturday’s dramatic win over Newcastle.
United overturned a two-goal deficit to win 3-2 at Old Trafford thanks to second-half goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and a 90th-minute winner from Alexis Sanchez.
The club dismissed reports Mourinho was to lose his job regardless of the result and Moyes believes the victory could prove to be a turning point for the Portuguese.
He said; “The big thing is that Jose has got himself a fantastic result at the weekend,” said Moyes, speaking at a Legends of Football event. “It doesn’t matter how you win but he did it in good style, beating Newcastle.
“I think that could settle things down a little bit. It takes time for all managers at Manchester United.
“Jose has been given time and I’m sure given more time – he’s a winner and I’m sure he will go on to prove that.”
