Club legend Peter Schmeichel says that Manchester United should not have not sacked David Moyes less than a year after his appointment.

Peter Schmeichel has claimed that David Moyes should have been given more time as Manchester United manager.

United have - so far - failed to secure a long-term replacement since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, with Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho all having tried and failed to win the Premier League title.

Moyes lasted less than a season after being brought in to take over from Ferguson, but club legend Schmeichel feels that the Scot was not given the chance to be successful at Old Trafford.

The Dane told beIN Sports: "If we should have any regrets at Manchester United, it's that we only gave David Moyes seven months. I think we should have given him more time, accepted that results weren't going to be what we hoped and playing would have been a little different.

"I believe he would have grown into the role. He has the personality and the understanding. He had so many things to learn and no one to learn it from. He was left to run the football department on his own. From the club's perspective we should never have dismissed him."

United are currently impressing under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has recorded 10 wins and a draw from his 11 matches in all competitions.
