David Moyes believes Mourinho will receive the backing he did not from the United board 2 Some sources claimed the Portuguese would be axed as manager regardless of the result at Old Trafford, but after United’s comeback from two goals down to win 3-2 against the Magpies, he has so far remained in his position.Moyes experienced the ruthlessness of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward’s regime when he was dismissed after just ten months in charge, despite having the support of predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson.The man who replaced Moyes, Dutchman Louis van Gaal, was similarly axed despite winning the FA Cup.But even amid the intense pressure surrounding Mourinho, Moyes senses the ‘Special One’ will be given the time he was not, and that Mourinho’s history of success would justify them doing so.“I think the club are firmly behind the manager, and he’s been a winner, Jose, throughout his career, so I don’t see why that should suddenly change,” the Scot, 55, told Press Association Sport. Mourinho remains under a lot of pressure at the Old Trafford helm, but Moyes says his job is not under threat 2last_img
