David Moyes Slams Manchester United Stating They Lack Ambition And Don’t Back Their Managers

The Scot speaks out after being sacked in April.

David Moyes has spoken out about his tenure at Manchester United after being sacked by the Premier League club in April only 11 months into a six-year contract.

The Scot has since been replaced by Louis van Gaal and is yet to find a new job himself and has let rip on the club that didn’t turn out to reach his high expectations of them.

“I’m really ambitious,” Moyes told the BBC.

“I would never have left Everton FC for anybody but an ambitious football club. And I thought Manchester United would have given me that opportunity.

“It didn’t materialise that way, so I am hoping that the next club I join gives me the chance to build a team, because I think that is what I am good at.”

Moyes always had a difficult task trying to fill the shoes vacated by legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson after 26-and-a-half years in the dugout at Old Trafford.

However, the 51-year-old doesn’t think he was given the same courtesy as his predecessor and whilst he appreciates football has changed over the years, he still feels he was treated unfairly.

“I got the job and I expected it to be a six-year plan,” Moyes continued.

“I signed a six-year contract… disappointed it didn’t go to plan. I expected to be given an opportunity to fulfil that and it wasn’t what was expected.

“It was really difficult when I lost the job initially because I didn’t really see it coming, even though I had been losing games.

“I knew that it could be difficult but I joined a club that I felt stood behind their managers, made sure they supported them in difficult times. And, you know, Sir Alex had difficult times when he first took over.”

As yet Moyes hasn’t found another job, but despite his poor form with United an impressive 11-year stint in charge of the Toffees should see him given a decent position in the near future.
