References to Moyes’s future at Old Trafford are then deleted.
Rio Ferdinand’s magazine has had to perform a dramatic U-turn after it published an article claiming that under-pressure Manchester United head coach David Moyes was facing the sack after Sunday’s loss to Liverpool, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The Red Devils centre back’s magazine ran an article on line recently entitled: “Five things we learned in football this week”, which in which it said: “Time is running out” for Moyes and that “Three defeats on the trot would surely spell the end for the manager.”
However, the website then changed that to instead read: “It’s been a tough old season for David Moyes, and the worry for him is that a 3-0 home loss to Liverpool might not yet represent its nadir.
“Not only does his side need to overturn a two-goal midweek deficit against Olympiacos to avoid a Champions League exit, but they then welcome Man City to Old Trafford a week on Tuesday. It could be a long week.”
Meanwhile, the article’s title was also then changed from: ‘Time is running out for Moyes” to: “There’s no let up due for Moyes” in an embarrassing U-turn by the former England international.
However, Moyes himself responded to all the recent speculation regarding his future by saying: ‘This club will rise again.
“I think the support inside Old Trafford has been phenomenal. I’ve told the players we need to give something back now, we need to start performing together. Me and the team.
“We need to make sure that we work together to get a performance on the night to be remembered.
“We’ll leave nothing behind on the night hopefully and we’ll try to make sure that we somehow get ourselves through to the next round.”
