Scottish boss could be axed if Man United don’t overcome deficit against Olympiakos on Wednesday night.
Man United boss David Moyes is dangerously close to the sack according to the Manchester Evening News.
The Old Trafford manager received a great deal of support from those at Old Trafford during Man United’s humiliating 3-0 home defeat at the hands of rivals Liverpool, though it’s not immediately clear what the Scottish boss has done in order to earn such respect.
This source points out, correctly, that Moyes is lucky to still be in a job but one imagines that the clamour to have the former Everton man axed will increase significantly if Man United fail to overcome the two goal deficit to overcome Olympiakos in their Champions League encounter on Wednesday night.
Man United sit in seventh place in the table and are not only a country mile from top of the table Chelsea but a seemingly insurmountable 12 points off the top four, having played two games more than Man City.
Sir Alex Ferguson never lost ten games in a Premier League season and Moyes is looking odds on to surpass that total with relative ease having suffered nine defeats already this term.
Old Trafford was something of a fortress under Ferguson but it appears a trip to the legendary venue holds no fears to visitors with Man United having lost an incredible six home matches, not to mention being dumped out of the Capital One Cup semi-final on penalties.
The clock is most definitely ticking.
