Moyes defends himself over ‘chipgate’.
Real Sociedad boss David Moyes has responded to criticism from Rio Ferdinand over removing chips from the players’ diet during his time at Manchester United, the Daily Telegraph reports.
The Scot, who left Old Trafford in April after a poor run of results, insists he had to take chips off the menu at the training ground because a number of players were overweight and needed to improve their diet.
Ferdinand brought the issue up in his autobiography, and Moyes responded to questions about 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.”
