Moyes: Stability the path to success

Manchester United manager David Moyes believes stability and longevity at the top of the coaching structure breeds sustained success.

David Moyes gives his approval as United make a strong start against Villa.
David Moyes believes success can only come from stable management.

• Mitten: Striking situation

United were one of the most victorious clubs under former long-term manager Alex Ferguson, but have yet to reach those heights under Moyes.

And the first-year Red Devils boss has already seen several rival managers dismissed for poor form this season with Andre Villas-Boas, Steve Clarke, Ian Holloway and Paolo Di Canio all sacked by their respective clubs.

However, former Everton boss Moyes, using the examples of Ferguson and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, believes that long-term success can only be achieved through stable management.    

“We are in a world where jobs change very quickly,” he said. “I don't think that is right.

“The most successful clubs have had stability and longevity in their managers.

“That existed here with Sir Alex Ferguson and look what Arsene Wenger has done at Arsenal as well.

“Folk might say they have not won as much as they would like but they have a stable football club that is going in the right direction, with a fantastic stadium they fill every week.

“You have to give managers the opportunity to manage.

“The more you keep chopping and changing the more turmoil there is and the more money you waste.”

But Moyes said stability in the coaching ranks is not the only ingredient for success, believing the club had to be run by the right people.

“It is a problem if you don't have the right owners or people in charge,” said Moyes.

“You hope to have people who understand where the club is going, the vision you have and the style they want to play.

“I was really fortunate to have learned at a very young age from a great guy at Preston, Bryan Gray, and then when I went to Everton I had Bill Kenwright.

“They educated me but I hope I helped them as well by showing them the football side.

“Nevertheless, it does make me realise how lucky I have been working for the clubs I have.”

Meanwhile, United are eyeing a first piece of silverware this season when they face Stoke in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.

And Moyes said he was ‘desperate’ to break his own personal trophy drought.

“I am desperate to get to Wembley,” said Moyes.

“I want to be seen as someone who has been successful and won trophies.

“It is something that has eluded me so far but I am trying to make it happen and believe I am at the best club to do so.”
