The Scot is clearly following in the footsteps of Sir Alex.
David Moyes subjected the Manchester United players to the famous ‘hairdryer’ treatment adopted by predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson, after Sunday’s 4-1 loss to Manchester City.
In the first derby of the season between these two sides Moyes’ team were rolled over in what turned out to be an extremely one-sided affair at the Etihad Stadium.
The Red Devils stars may have thought that with Ferguson having retired they would avoid the legendary dressing down after the match, but it wasn’t to be.
“I’ve made them aware of that [that the performance was unacceptable],” Moyes was quoted by the Mirror.
“I’ve been here before with Everton and never suffered a defeat like this.
“So I just told the players, in the same way I would have told players at any other club, if I don’t think they’re doing it.
“I’m disappointed we didn’t perform. There was no reason for us not to perform, but it was one game. There’s plenty of time to come.”
In what was a dismal display from United, Wayne Rooney was perhaps the only member of the away side to leave the match with any credit – scoring a superb free-kick late on to save some blushes.
The England international was forced to lead the line with Danny Welbeck after top-scorer Robin Van Persie was ruled out of the clash through injury.
Moyes will be hoping that Rooney can maintain the form that saw the forward net twice against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League mid-week, as the Premier League champions look to bounce back immediately.
