Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has said that Louis van Gaal deserves more time to turn things around at the club.
The Dutchman has come under intense pressure in recent months due to United's poor form, culminating this week in back-to-back defeats against Sunderland and FC Midtjylland.
Moyes himself was given his marching orders just 10 months after succeeding the 26-year reign of Sir Alex Ferguson, but he insists that United need to be wary of becoming a "sacking club".
"I don't think Manchester United should become a sacking club," Moyes told BBC Sport.
"I was disappointed when I lost my job after 10 months, but we would think Manchester United have always stood for much greater things than sacking their managers regularly. So, I don't think they should (sack him)."
