The Scot, now in charge of La Liga side Real Sociedad, believes a number of the first-team squad at Old Trafford were overweight, and that he was right to ban chips from their diet.

This decision was heavily criticised by former defender Rio Ferdinand in his autobiography, but Moyes has stood by it, saying: “Yes, I did ban chips. It was because a couple of players were overweight and I didn’t think chips were good for their diet.”

Moyes was appointed to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at the start of 2013/14, but did not last the season and was replaced by Louis van Gaal in the summer.
