The Scot was sacked by United just nine months after succeeding Sir Alex Fergusond, butis confident the board will be patient with Mourinho.
Mourinho earned a stay of execution when United came back from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle 3-2 and Moyes says that could be a turning point.
“The big thing is that Jose has got himself a fantastic result at the weekend.
“It doesn’t matter how you win, but he did it in good style, beating Newcastle.
“I think that could settle things down a little bit. It takes time for all managers at Manchester United .
“Jose has been given time and I’m sure given more time. He’s a winner and I’m sure he will go on to prove that,” he said according to the UK Mirror.
