Manchester United Remove David Moyes ‘Chosen One’ Banner From Old Trafford

Banner may now be replaced by a mural dedicated to United legend Sir Bobby Charlton. 

Premier League champions Manchester United have decided to remove the much-publicised “Chosen One” banner from the Stretford End at Old Trafford following the departure of David Moyes from the club earlier this week, according to reports in the Guardian.

The Scot was only appointed to take over from previous Red Devils head coach Sir Alex Ferguson at the end of last season, with Fergie having played a pivotal role in the former Everton manager’s arrival at the Theatre of Dreams from Goodison Park on a six-year deal last summer.

However, just ten months into his reign in the north west and Moyes was sacked on Tuesday morning following a face-to-face meeting with the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at United’s training ground at Carrington.

During his short tenure at United, Moyes had to deal with the added focus of being Ferguson’s hand-picked successor, with his first home match in charge of the champions against Chelsea last August being accompanied by a new banner at the Stretford End proclaiming “The Chosen One”.

But now, following the Glaswegian’s departure from the club, the Stretford End Flags group, who initially paid for the banner, have said they are unsure what to do with it

“It’s something we’re going to think about carefully. We may offer it to the National Football Museum or auction it off for charity,” co-founder Andrew Kilduff said.
