News, views and rumours relating to Manchester United in the past 24 hours.

Manchester United and England legend David Beckham has backed David Moyes to succeed.

"I played with [Moyes] during my loan spell at Preston and I've seen him progress as a manager over the years at Everton," the 38-year-old told talkSPORT.

"I'm really happy for him that he got the job at United because he’s a really great person and he’s a talented manger. It's good to see him there and the United fans are behind him well which is a good thing.”

"Whoever took over after Sir Alex Ferguson left it was always going to be a difficult time, a transitional time, but at the end of the day, it’s like when a player leaves, Manchester United are still Manchester United.”

"Sir Alex has retired, but David Moyes has taken over, United always move on when they sell players and I’m sure they will with Moyes as manager now," he added.
