David Moyes should have been given more time by Manchester United, according to Garry Monk

David Moyes needed more time to stamp his authority at Manchester United, according to Swansea boss Garry Monk.

The 50-year-old Scot was sacked on Tuesday after a dismal 10 months in charge of the Red Devils left United languishing in seventh place in the Premier League table.

Ryan Giggs has been placed in charge of the Red Devils on a temporary basis until the end of the season, with Louis van Gaal among the favourites to be handed the job over the summer.

But Swans boss Monk feels that the Premier League side should have stood by Moyes for longer.

“It does take time,” Monk said. “Going into that club as he did, following someone so successful, is always going to be hard.

“For any manager, you need time, but nowadays, as we see time and time again in this job, you simply just don’t get the time.

“It is results-driven, especially for a club like Manchester United that is expected to be winning a lot of trophies every single season.”
