Former Manchester United boss spoke upon being unveiled by Real Sociedad.
Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has been unveiled as the new boss of Real Sociedad.
Moyes was sacked by the Red Devils in April after less than one season in charge, after a disastrous campaign.
At his presentation at Sociedad, he was adamant he was not given enough of a chance.
"I still stand by what I said at the time that I was not given enough time to succeed or fail.
"I can see that whoever is in charge at Manchester United, it is quite a long job to do things. Nine months would never be enough time for any manager."
He followed up the jab at his former employers by, insisting, reported by The Guardian: "I believe this is the biggest challenge of my career."
Moyes went onto discuss his replacement Louis van Gaal, insisting he needs the backing he felt he never had.
"Louis van Gaal has to be given the time to do the job and he’s got to be given that opportunity to get the players he wants and to get the transfer windows he needs to do that, and that would be no different for any manager.”
It's easy to see Moyes still has regrets over the way his spell at Old Trafford panned out, but to suggest he 'didn't fail', is taking his opinions a bit too far.
