Former Internacional forward Diego Forlán believes Manchester United fans need to be patient with David Moyes
Former Internacional forward Diego Forlán has backed Manchester United manager David Moyes to succeed.
The 34 year-old, who played for the Premier League holders between 2001 and 2004, believes the club’s fans need to be patient and give Moyes time.
"Players aren't robots, they need time to adjust,” he told the Daily Telegraph.
"I think David Moyes will do well but fans need to be patient. United give their managers time. They should judge in another season.
"Until Moyes gets it right, it's a bonus for all the other teams. It's their moment now, their window to profit while United change.”
Forlán left Manchester United in August 2004 for Villarreal. After a successful spell at the Yellow Submarines, he moved on to enjoy a similarly prosperous stint with Atlético de Madrid, before joining Internazionale. Forlán's time in Italy was, however, largely unsuccessful and he soon departed for Internacional. After two seasons at the Porto Alegre-based club, he signed with J.League Division 1 side Cerezo Osaka last month.
