Louis Saha reckons the Manchester United job came “just too early” for David Moyes.

The France international had the benefit of playing under Red Devils legend Sir Alex Ferguson and former Everton boss Moyes during his playing career.

Moyes succeeded his fellow Scot in the Old Trafford hot seat in May 2013, but the 52-year-old was sacked less than 11 months later.

And former Everton and United striker Saha reckons Moyes’s disappointing transfer activity sealed his fate at the 20-time English champions.

“I think to look at it, first maybe it was just too early for him,” Saha told Republik of Mancunia.

“As he was, maybe it just wasn’t the right timing and maybe it was too early for Van Gaal as well because now he’s just starting to do well after four months.

“So that’s the thing, for David Moyes it was just too early because the transition was too strong.

“At the same time, because he did not have the pedigree with a lot of trophies and stuff like this, maybe players were not taking his advice as much or as quick because of that. A few mistakes in the transfer market absolutely killed it.”
