Moyes unhappy with United treatment


New Sunderland manager David Moyes believes he was unfairly treated by his former club Manchester United.

Moyes signed a six-year deal when he was appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor in May 2013, but the Scot was sacked before the end of his first season in charge after the club failed to qualify for Europe.

He struggled at Real Sociedad, while Louis van Gaal failed to make a big impact at Old Trafford and the former Everton manager maintains he was the right man to succeed Ferguson.

"You don't get offered those big jobs - Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United - for no reason," Moyes said.

"I've said all along I was unfairly treated there. When you sign a six-year contract and you end up with 10 months ... yeah, I believe I was.

"I didn't win enough football matches but you must say there were mitigating circumstances. And I think you could say there are maybe things which have gone on since then that would actually justify that even more so."

Despite his failure at Old Trafford, Moyes believes he is capable of managing a big club and is pleased to have the opportunity to manage Sunderland.

"What my time at Manchester United gave me is an unbelievable idea of what it is at the top. I believe that's where I can work and that's where I should be working, and my level is that," he said.
