Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has stunned fans after he compared himself with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in bizarre fashion.
The now West Ham boss seemed to hint the legendary Norwegian is only doing so well because he has been given more time.
Moyes’ reign ended poorly and is probably the supporters least favourite manager in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.
The Scotsman appeared to be far out of his depth and turned a United side full of title winners into an embarrassing squad.
Louis van Gaal would later come in and shuffle the pack so to speak after seeing a defeated Red Devils team.

Or that you're just a bad manager?

Ole won 14 out of his first 17 games, 9 away wins in a row and set a premier league record for most points gained by a new manager in their first 10 games. What is this clown on about.

Moyes’ comments were incredibly strange and it would be giving him too much credit to put it down to mind games ahead of the clash with his West Ham side.
The former Everton manager has consistently spoken about his past with Manchester United, constantly blaming his failure on his lack of time at the club.
Whatever the reason for the lack of success, to dismiss Solskjaer’s progress is strange simply because it’s factually incorrect.
The former Molde man was only given the position after his remarkable performance over his interim period and is now reaping the rewards of his hard work.
18-year-old Mason Greenwood has been setting the world on fire for Manchester United this season. But how much do you know about other teenage stars that have played for the Red Devils over the years? Take our quiz below to find out.
