‘A disastrous season, an inevitable sacking’

2014-04-23 00:00

Former United defender Gary Neville

“There is no disguising that the football this season has been poor, the results have been poor. As a fan, I’ve not enjoyed watching it.

“I’m sure David Moyes himself hasn’t enjoyed watching it.”

Interim manager Ryan Giggs

“I think you’ve got to be natural as much as you can as a manager, find your own style, not try and be somebody else.

“Different people have different characteristics.”

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher

“It has been disastrous season. It was inevitable. These seven months have been terrible, but he [Moyes] did a great job at Everton and Preston. He will come back as a manager.”

Former United striker Dwight Yorke

“It’s been a huge disappointment not to be involved in the race for the Premier League title, to get knocked out of the Champions League and to be out of the race for a place in next season’s Champions League. The players are equally to blame.”

Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp

“People say they’re not a sacking club, Man United don’t sack managers. Well, there’s one reason why they’ve not sacked a manager for the last 26 years.

“It’s because they had the best in Alex Ferguson.

“They’ve never needed to. Otherwise they’d have just been like everybody else and probably had nine or 10 managers.”
