David Moyes to be sacked by Manchester United in next few weeks
Moyes’ contract to be terminated by the Glazer family who are dismayed by the team’s poor performances this season
April 21st, 2014
David Moyes will not be given time to build his own legacy at Old Trafford, with reports emerging on Easter Monday that the Scot will be axed as Manchester United manager in the next few weeks.
Sir Alex Ferguson cherry-picked his compatriot to take the reins at United, although the team have performed poorly throughout the campaign and have missed out on a Champions League spot by some way, while their defence of a Premier League crown has been a weak one.
It appears that the Glazer family have made up their mind to axe Moyes soon rather than later so that a replacement can be found who can rebuild the squad at Old Trafford and start challenging for honours once again.
Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at Everton appears to have been the straw that broke the camel’s back, although recent 3-0 home reverses against Manchester City and Liverpool have seen United supporters question the appointment of Moyes, while Ferguson has also been verbally abused for his part in the selection process.
If Moyes is sacked before the end of the season, the Daily Mail reports that Ryan Giggs will be appointed as interim manager, although whether the Welshman will be considered as a full-time replacement is another matter.
United are seventh in the Premier League table and the weekend reverse means it’s no longer mathematically possible for the Red Devils to qualify for the Champions League.
