Joe Jordan has backed David Moyes to continue to bring success to Manchester United.

Moyes was appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at Old Trafford on a six-year contract following the Scot’s decision to retire at the end of last season.

And former United striker Jordan, who is currently first-team coach under Harry Redknapp at QPR, believes the ex-Everton boss is a wise appointment by the Red Devils.

“You can have a bit of banter about him being a Scot as United, in the past, have been associated with great Scottish managers,” said Jordan. “But I think he’s earned his passage to manage United.

“I think it’s a great appointment. Not just because he’s Scottish.

“I think he will give every hour there is in the day to continue to do what’s right, what he thinks is right, to keep Manchester United where they have been and hopefully continue that success.”
