Steele: Give Moyes some time
Former Manchester United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele is calling for patience with under-fire manager David Moyes.
The champions have endured a disastrous start to the season - languishing in the lower half of the league following three defeats in their last four Premier League games.
Saturday's shock 2-1 loss to West Brom at a deflated Old Trafford sparked fresh concerns over Moyes' efforts since taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer but Steele, who also departed in May, says time will be the healer.
The 59-year-old told Sky Sports News: "There's a transition period. You'll remember when Sir Alex Ferguson went in and it was never easy for him. David Moyes has gone in and had to take over a huge machine.
"If you look at the experience he has, he knows the Premier League. People forget that. He's got people around him who can support him. He's also got people up top in Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Alex and David Gill.
"He's got people who he can turn to and say: 'Right. What do you think I should do?' He's got enough support there. I think there will be patience shown with David."
