The Scottish boss refused to work with Sir Alex’s staff…
Manchester United manager David Moyes ignored the advice of his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson, and chose not to work with the legendary manager’s back-room staff, reports the Mirror.
Moyes got the United job after a recommendation from Ferguson, who led the club brilliantly for 26 and a half years.
Despite this, Moyes decided to let Ferguson’s back-room staff move on with their former boss, and bring in the coaches that he worked with at Everton.
United currently sit in 12th place, eight points behind leaders Arsenal, having lost three of their opening six games, suffering an embarrassing 2-1 home defeat to West Brom at the weekend. They have not scored from open play since the opening day of the season, and have endured their worst league start for 24 seasons.
Moyes has claimed his entire team are below-par at the moment, and is keen on bringing in a whole host of big money signings when the transfer window opens in January.
“There were lots of things that disappointed me,” said Moyes.
“I don’t think the midfield was just the one department where you’d say we were lacking. I think it would be unfair to say it was any [specific area].
“It was the whole thing, we were lacklustre in nearly all the areas.
“So we’ve got to try and work on it and improve. We’ve just not played that well. We should be scoring more from open play,” added the Scottish boss.
Moyes’ team travel to Ukraine this week for a tough Champions League group match against Shakhtar Donetsk, before visiting Sunderland next weekend.
