Paul Scholes admits that he 'feels sorry' for Manchester United manager David Moyes and insists that it is "too early" to sack him.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has admitted that he 'feels sorry' for manager David Moyes, who has been under scrutiny since taking over at Old Trafford last summer.

The Scotsman replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at the helm, but has failed to match his predecessor by dropping the Red Devils to seventh in the Premier League table with nine games left to play.

"It's far too early [to sack him]," Scholes told "With all the injuries he's had, I feel quite sorry for him really. He's never been able to put out the same back four.

"You see all the top teams, they have the same back four every week, especially with the centre-backs, they need to get an understanding and rhythm together.

"Michael Carrick's been injured, Robin van Persie's been injured, key players have been injured but he's not made any excuses and tried to get on with it and hopefully next year will be better."

While their league form has dwindled, United remain in the Champions League and discovered today that they will face holders Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.
