Jose Mourinho cannot comprehend why some Manchester United supporters blame Sir Alex Ferguson for the club's struggles this season.

Moyes thinks even Ferguson would have struggled with the current Manchester United squad this season. "If Sir Alex were here this year it would be difficult for him as well and I'm sure he'd agree," said the United boss, who is unfazed by talk of a planned protest by fans on Saturday. "People are aware there's a squad that is ageing, so it would have been a tough season for whoever was in charge of United this year. It could have been the case no matter what."
