The 35-year-old, who left Old Trafford on a free transfer to Queens Park Rangers this summer, spent twelve years with the Red Devils and enjoyed tremendous success under Sir Alex Ferguson.
However, he has now revealed the truth as things turned sour under Moyes last season, with the former Everton boss’ reign leading to a disastrous 7th place finish in the Premier League.
“Moyes’ innovations mostly led to negativity and confusion,” he said.
“The biggest confusion was over how he wanted us to move the ball forward. Often he told us to play it long. Some players felt they kicked the ball long more than at any time in their career
“Sometimes our main tactic was the long, high, diagonal cross. It was embarrassing. In one home game against Fulham we had 81 crosses! I was thinking, why are we doing this? Andy Carroll doesn’t play for us!”
