When questioned by reporters on the day of Sir Alex Ferguson’s book release as to whether he would be reading it, David Moyes insisted he would when he had the time to.
“I’m sure when the time arises I will,” he said.
“I’ve not got much time in this job, that’s for sure.”
It seems Moyes has found the time sooner rather than later as he packed the book in his case for Manchester United’s trip to Spain to face Real Sociedad.
Moyes has also got a copy of Sons of United, a detailed history looking at the youth teams of United, and has vowed to read that when he can.
More so than most clubs, United’s history embodies the ethos and personality of our club with it’s embedded traditions and longstanding attitudes, so it is great to see that Moyes is willing to learn about it all.
Plus, there is no better way to get a feeling of what it is like to be United’s manager than to read the memoirs of a man who did for nearly three decades.
