Jose backs Moyes to succeed

Jose Mourinho has backed new Manchester United manager David Moyes to be a success as Sir Alex Ferguson's replacement at Old Trafford.

Last Updated: 24/08/13 at 13:55

Mourinho takes his Chelsea side to Old Trafford on Monday and expects to face the same challenge he did when opposing a Ferguson side.

"There are things that we cannot change," Mourinho said.

"David has experience and he knows that he cannot change history. The history that Sir Alex did is there and it is there forever.

"Is that a problem for David? I don't think so. I think David doesn't want to be compared with Sir Alex.

"I think he's in the best moment of his career - maturity, experience, a big, big, big club, very good players. I think he's in a fantastic position and I think he's going to do very well.

"I hope he doesn't win everything and he will leave something for the others, but he's in fantastic condition."

Mourinho enjoyed a close relationship with Ferguson and hopes to have a similar one with his successor.

"You have the guarantee that after the match, independent of the result, we are together again, enjoying our time and having a laugh," he added.

"With David we don't have this kind of relationship, but we have a good relationship.

"I think we can start this kind of very nice relationship I had always with Sir Alex, no problem.

"During the game, it's a game. It's not manager against manager. It's club against club, it's 11 against 11, it's big players against big players. We just do our job normally."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
