LONDON (AFP) - Alex Ferguson insists under-fire Manchester United manager David Moyes can still salvage his side's season with a strong run in the second half of the campaign.

United have struggled badly since Ferguson retired at the end of last season after almost 27 years in charge at Old Trafford.

Ferguson hand-picked Moyes as his successor but the former Everton boss has so far failed to emulate his fellow Scot's triumphant reign.

United are languishing 14 points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal and face a battle just to finish in the top four.
