Jose Mourinho: David Moyes is going to do very well at Man United

Jose Mourinho has backed David Moyes to be a resounding success at Manchester United following his appointment as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor.
Mourinho will take his Chelsea side to Old Trafford on Monday night as the Blues prepare to do battle with the defending champions following both teams’ 100 per cent starts to the season.
And the Portuguese coach, who returned to Stamford Bridge on a four-year deal earlier this summer after quitting Real Madrid, believes that Moyes is ready to forge his own legacy at Old Trafford as he attempts to follow in Ferguson’s footsteps.
“The history of Sir Alex is there forever,” Mourinho said. “Is that a problem for David? I don’t think so because I don’t think David wants to be compared with Sir Alex.
“David is an experienced manager with years and year in the Premier League and this is the best moment of his career.
“He has maturity, experience, a big club, very good players so he is in a fantastic position and I think he is going to do very well.
“I hope he doesn’t win everything and leaves something for the others, but he is in fantastic condition.
“Now he knows to be successful he has to win trophies, but he has the potential to do that.”
