'People have to trust him' – Former Premier League starlet backs West Ham boss
By Laura O’Leary
Adnan Januzaj has backed David Moyes to do well at West Ham revealing he believes Moyes is a “good manager” who needs to be trusted more.
In an interview with Sky Sports, the Belgium international was asked about his former manager taking on the role as Hammers boss.
He said: “He is a good manager and obviously people have to trust him more as he done it at Everton for a long time.”
The 22-year-old played under Moyes at two separate clubs, featuring for both Manchester United and Sunderland during his reigns.
The Scottish manager was actually the one to bring Januzaj to Sunderland, securing him on a season long loan from Manchester United in 2016.

Januzaj has featured 11 times for Real Sociedad across all competitions, registering two assists and grabbing one goal.
His only goal this season came in his last game for the club, a 3-1 victory over SD Eibar.
Moyes was appointed Hammers manager on Tuesday, replacing Slaven Bilic who was dismissed on Monday by the club.
West Ham are currently situated 18th in the Premier, just inside the relegation zone, having acquired only nine points from their first 11 games of the season.
Moyes’ first game in charge of West Ham will be after the international break against Watford on November 19.
