"He has to establish his own ideas. Transition is something where you have to get your own ideas over. Then you have to find out who wants to roll with you or not. If they don't want to roll with you - irrespective of what they have done before - as many chief executives have said to me, 'Don't waste your time on them - get rid of them son!' Transition has to be expected. It took Alex four years to win a trophy. There isn't that much time now we all know that but in the end time will tell and we all know our position always will be judged on the results you get. You can't always be in your number one spot. Sometimes you have a little dip for whatever reason, it might be injuries or a loss of form by some of your players - it happens so you can't always be expected to finish where you should finish otherwise the game becomes too predictable and boring. So it's a poor season for Manchester United in the league - who knows what they might do in the Champions League? David will be sat there now, because everybody is writing them off, and that might not be a bad thing for them. They might be top of the league this time next year and everyone will be talking about what a great choice he was."
