"The aura that Sir Alex had, David Moyes does not yet have," Villas-Boas said, according to The Times.
"This could have a direct influence on the players of Manchester and their opponents. United had, because of Sir Alex’s history of winning, an aura of invincibility.
"The fear made everything harder and may continue if [Moyes’s] adaptation is fast. The structure and squad are top, but there was one voice. I am curious to see [what will happen]."
