Former Manchester United manager David Moyes feels he was not giving time during his regime at the club unlike the club's current manager Ole Gunner Solsjkaer.

Moyes who is the current West Ham United manager said so on Tuesday ahead of their clash against Manchester United on Wednesday. He noted that Ole has time to build his team and they look fascinating to see.

The Scottish manager was tagged the "chosen one" during his time at the club as he was the one that replaced Manchester United longtime serving manager Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013. The 57-year-old coach did not live up to expectation as he was sacked a year after his appointment. Moyes only lifted the FA Community Shield cup during the time.

Moyes will be visiting Manchester United on Wednesday clash in the Premier League.

"Ole had a difficult start, but the difference between Ole and me is that he's being given time. He's bringing players in from the academy, which United have always stood for," Moyes told a news conference.

"They have got really exciting young players of their own now... It's a wonderful club and a brilliant place to be, and the biggest club in the world, for me. It's always a special place to go, and I'm looking forward to going back."

West Ham is currently in the 16th position of the Premier League table and has won their last two matches scoring seven goals in those matches. At the same time, Manchester United has been unbeaten in Premier League games since project restart. The club is sitting in the fifth position of the table, and a win past Westham will see them climb the fourth position in the table.

Speaking about the clash, Moyes said: "The maths tell us the job isn't done yet, so we've got to prepare and ensure we're ready for the next game and take the three points if we can."

"We've not changed our approach. We've trained every day and prepared hard because we want to get better, not just for this season but for the future."

Moyes said Czech midfielder Tomas Soucek, who joined on loan from Slavia Prague in January, was part of his future plans.

"He's a West Ham player, simple as that," Moyes said.
