Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer will face a former United manager David Moyes as United play host to West Ham at Old Trafford later tonight.

Moyes spent just ten months as United boss, after the departure of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.

Moyes has always been disappointed with the amount of time he was given at United. In July last year, he bemoaned his treatment at United compared to Solskjaer as he said ‘Ole had a difficult start, but the difference between Ole and me is that he’s being given time.’

Meanwhile, ahead of Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford, Solskjaer has maintained that there’s no room for sympathy for Moyes as well as any manager who should take charge of the club.

“I don’t think you can feel sorry for someone who has managed Manchester United, but he’s proving again what he’s capable of at West Ham,” Solskjaer said.

“In football, you shouldn’t be surprised at anything, but I’ve got to say that David has made massive improvements with the West Ham team – this season and last season as well.

“They have got (Mikel) Antonio really flying, (Thomas) Soucek is scoring goals – and he has really built on that.

“After a poor start – I remember they lost 2-0 to Newcastle on the opening day – David made some decisions, stuck with them, and they are up there on merit.

“You don’t get results over a long period without working at it – and you can see how well organised they are.”
