Ferguson backs struggling Moyes

David Moyes will steer Manchester United out of their current slump, former manager Alex Ferguson believes, although should he fail there will be no return for Britain's most successful manager.

Ferguson's successor has endured a rocky opening to his reign at Old Trafford with the club suffering its worst start in the league since 1989 when Ferguson himself was under pressure to start stocking the trophy cabinet.

"Moyes will do a good job for United, I'm confident of that," Ferguson said.

"He was my choice to succeed me and I'm still absolutely behind him 100 percent.

"The club will also give their full support and he will be just fine. United are in good hands," Ferguson said. 

He also dismissed rumours of his coming back. "I am certainly not interested in managing again and getting all worked up over results," he said.

"I made my decision, it was perfect timing. I went out a winner and I'm looking forward to new challenges in my life,” added Ferguson.
