Mourinho, who was touted as a possible replacement for Ferguson, maintains former Everton boss Moyes deserves his shot at one of the highest-profile jobs in world football.

"They have made good decisions," he said.

"David proved himself at Everton. Okay, no trophies, but it's not easy to get a trophy when you manage Everton and he was not far from doing that.

"He has good experience, good work. I am more than happy, and I feel very happy for him.

"Man United will give him the time to adapt to a new dimension.

"He has never played a Champions League match so people can't expect him to be a fish in water in that first match.

"Give him time, stability. United is perfect for that, so that's a very good choice."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
