Moyes plans to rebuild Manchester United

Manchester United manager David Moyes has plans to re-build the club over the next few years, and claims that Sir Alex Ferguson would have done the same thing.
Since taking over at United the club has faltered with an unspectacular start to the season, and despite a pickup of form of late the defending champions find themselves eight points behind leaders Arsenal as they take on Tottenham at Old Trafford on New Year’s Day.
The 50-year-old Scot will be looking to add to his squad during the January transfer window, but admits it might take years for him to build the team he wants speaking in the Daily Telegraph Moyes said: “In the coming months and years, there will be a rebuilding, I’ve got no doubt about that. We’ll be looking to do that and we’ll aim for that in the future.

“If Sir Alex was still here, he would have said there needed to be a rebuilding job, but it’s a continual rebuilding job going on here all the time.

“That’s part of the job and if you play for this club, you always know there’s going to be competition for places. I think if you manage this club there are always going to be big decisions to make.”
United are on a roll after winning six matches in a row with Moyes believing that being part of the chasing pack for the title will motivate his players.

“I think the players needed a challenge,” Moyes added. “The challenge is now, ‘Well, hey, we’re not in the position we should be, let’s get back to where we want to be’.

“I do think they’ve got the bit between their teeth at the moment and I want that to continue week in, week out.

“We’re definitely in it, but we’ve got a long way to catch up. We’re not breathing down the necks of the teams above us at the moment, and we’ve got to try to get a wee bit closer, because once we get in that position, people will know exactly what Manchester United are capable of.”
