David Moyes "in better position to do Man Utd job now" as all-round manager

David Moyes would be in a "better position" now to be a success as Manchester United manager following his time with Real Sociedad, Sunderland and West Ham.

That is the view of former Hammer Trevor Sinclair, who has lauded the Scot for his recent work at the London Stadium following their Carabao Cup progression past Manchester City.

West Ham missed out on Champions League qualification by just two points last season, but have put that behind them to win their first three Europa League Group Stage outings.

With Moyes secure in his surroundings in the capital, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under intense pressure at Old Trafford following four Premier League fixtures without a victory.

Although Moyes is not in the frame to return to his former job, there have been links to both Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane who are both currently out of work.

Despite that, Sinclair has insisted that Moyes would now be in a better position to taste success with the Red Devils having won 27 of his 51 matches between 2013 and 2014.

Sinclair told talkSPORT this week: "I don't think he would have made it at Manchester United the first time around.

"I think the job was too big for him, too soon and it was probably the wrong time to take the job. I think the disappointment and the experience [improved him].

"There is [more pressure at United], but I think he's in a better position to do the job now after the disappointment and after looking back, analysing where it went wrong.

"Having a bit of an experience abroad, coming back and the job that he's done at West Ham, I think he's a better all-round manager."

Moyes said in September when asked if he ever thinks back to his failed United spell: "Yeah, I do because I see it as a huge opportunity to manage the biggest club in the world.

"And I don't blame anybody else bar myself. I needed to win more games. If you manage the biggest club in the world then you have to win the games and unfortunately, I didn't win enough games but, Ole is doing a really good job.

"I think all managers at any club would always ask for some time and if you can get that chance then it certainly helps you to build your squad and let you put your thoughts over to the team."
