Manchester United: Fans fume as David Moyes defends his record at Old Trafford

Manchester United: Fans fume as David Moyes defends his record at Old Trafford - Manchester United News

David Moyes has defended his Manchester United record from fierce criticism, insisting that “the difference between Ole and me is that he’s being given time.”

Man United welcome West Ham to Old Trafford on Wednesday evening in their penultimate game of the 2019/20 Premier League season.

Moyes was appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor in 2013 after an impressive 11-year-spell with Everton. He inherited a side that had won the Premier League the previous season but he failed to live up to expectations.

The Scottish head coach didn’t even last a full year at Old Trafford, as he was unceremoniously sacked by the board in April 2014 following a slump in form. At the time, United were seventh in the table with four games remaining, well adrift of a place in the Champions League.

In contrast, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are currently fifth in the Premier League, tied with Leicester City on 62 points, with two games left to play in the campaign. Solskjaer’s men were unbeaten in 19 games and will be looking to bounce back from a deflating defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals when they face the Hammers tomorrow.

Unsurprisingly, many United fans slammed the “delusional” manager on social media, with one supporter calling him “trash” and another saying that he was “awful” at Old Trafford.
