Van Gaal's first Premier League game in charge of the Red Devils ended in defeat after Swansea claimed a 2-1 victory on Saturday.

Moyes, who was sacked as United boss in April after struggling to maintain the form demonstrated under Sir Alex Ferguson, has urged for patience with the Dutchman.

"Everybody knew it was going to take time," Moyes said in quotes reported by Sport360. "Taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson for anybody, it would take time.

"Louis van Gaal will need the time to do the job as well. He'll need to have that opportunity to change things and get a team he wants.

"What happened today [in defeat to Swansea] happened to me against West Brom, Newcastle, and Everton last year.

"Every team in the Premier League is very organised now and quite often it's the special players that win you the games."

Speaking after the defeat to Swansea, Van Gaal expressed his disappointment with his United side's disjointed display.
