David Moyes’ infamously poor spell at Manchester United in 2013-14 massively tarnished his reputation after initially being billed as one of Britain’s best young managers. But after revitalising himself at West Ham United, Trevor Sinclair believes he is much more suitable now to take over United and suggested him as a possible replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Moyes was manager of the Red Devils from July 2013 to April 2014 after a superb eleven-year stint at Everton, in which he took them from the relegation zone to a consistent European contender.

The Scotsman was recommended by the departing Sir Alex Ferguson for the United job after his fellow countryman retired after 26 successful years in the dugout.

But after failing at United, Moyes’ reputation fell rapidly – failing in two other jobs before finding his feet at West Ham.

The Glasgow-born manager took West Ham from 16th to 6th in the space of just one season and is on track to do the same again this season with the Hammers in fourth position after nine games.

Former Hammers star Sinclair has backed Moyes’ abilities as a manager and claimed that Ferguson plunged him into the deep end too early.

“I don’t think Moyes would’ve made it at Manchester United the first time round,” Sinclair said on talkSPORT.

“I think the job was too big for him, too soon, and I think it was probably the wrong time to take the job.

“He’s in a better position to do that job now, after the disappointments, looking back and analysing where it went wrong.”

Moyes eventually had spells at Real Sociedad and Sunderland before moving back to east London.

He didn’t manage the Spanish outfit for long and was sacked on his one-year anniversary in San Sebastian.

He then moved to Sunderland but was eventually relegated with the Mackems after just eight wins in 43 games on Wearside.

Yet Sinclair believes this experience will have helped him massively.

He added: “Having a bit of an experience abroad, coming back and the job he’s done at West Ham. I think he’s a better all round manager.

“When we talk about learning from mistakes, you see Phil Foden last night, he didn’t even work the keeper [with his penalty].

“He’ll be devastated this morning, gutted last night, but in the long run, missing that penalty will probably make him a better player in the future.”
