United fans blast 'PR shambles'

ESPN FC's Des Curran looks at the leading candidates to succeed David Moyes at Manchester United.

Manchester United have been accused of turning themselves into a laughing stock with their handling of David Moyes' departure.

David Moyes was appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor in May 2013.
David Moyes was sacked less than a season into his reign as Manchester United manager.

• Payne: United shambles
• Marcotti: Fact and fiction
• Brewin: Departure inevitable
• Shaw: Why Moyes had to go

Moyes' nine-month reign at Old Trafford came to an end on Tuesday when he was sacked following a meeting at 8am with vice-chairman Ed Woodward at Carrington.

The dismissal did not come as a surprise as many national media outlets reported on Monday afternoon that Moyes was to be dismissed.

Although many fans wanted Moyes out after such a woeful season, the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) believes it was wrong for the story to leak nearly 24 hours before an official announcement was made.

“It's a PR shambles,” said MUST vice-chair Sean Bones. “Manchester United's history shows they deal with things with class and dignity but that has not been the case here.

“The story leaked before David Moyes has been spoken to, and that's not the Manchester United way. There was no dignity or class in the way they went about it.”

Although United fans never called for Moyes' head during games, it was clear that support for the manager was eroding with each of the 11 league defeats suffered by the club this term.

It was therefore no surprise that many chose to hail the news of his sacking when it was announced on the club's official Twitter feed.

Bones feels appointing Moyes was always going to be a gamble considering that the Scot's only previous experience came managing Everton and Preston.

“The appointment of David Moyes was seen by a lot of supporters as a risk,” he said. “Moyes wasn't proven at the very highest level, and Manchester United should be attracting the best and most proven managers in the world.”

Ryan Giggs will take charge of the first team on a temporary basis but speculation has already begun about who United want as a long-term successor to Moyes. Most fans appear to want Borussia Dortmund manager Juergen Klopp, although he is not thought to be high on United's wanted list.

Whoever succeeds Moyes, Bones fears for the future of the club while the Glazer family are in charge.

“The problems lie a lot deeper than David Moyes,” he said. “They lie with the Glazers and how they run the club.”
