Manchester United Players Left Confused By David Moyes’s Negative Tactics

Scot is under mounting pressure in the north west over the way that he sets his team up to play, especially following the midweek loss in Athens.

Manchester United’s players are understood to be “bemused” by the tactics adopted by new head coach David Moyes at Old Trafford this season, according to reports in The Times.

The Scot has only been in the hot seat at the Theatre of Dreams for less than a year now after taking over from previous Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson last July.

However, it is fair to say that Moyes’s debut campaign in charge of the Premier League champions has not gone quite according to plan, with the club now set to end the season without a trophy after Tuesday night’s shock 2-0 loss to Olympiacos in the first leg of their Uefa Champions League round-of-16 clash in the Greek capital.

And now, as if to make matters worse, reports are starting to leak out of United of a general unhappiness and bemusement over the Scot’s tactics so far in this campaign, in particular Moyes’s insistence that his central midfielders remain stationed firmly behind the ball at all times in a most un-United like fashion.
