Roy Carroll shocked by United showing

Olympiakos goalkeeper Roy Carroll has told the BBC it was a “big shock” to see his former club Manchester United perform so poorly in the first leg of their Champions League tie.

Okwonga: Moyes must shake things up
Moyes determined to progress
Rooney: We need fans’ support

United lost 2-0 in Greece last month and now face an uphill battle to qualify for the quarterfinals of the competition as David Moyes fights to keep the faith of the boardroom.

Carroll, who played for Sir Alex Ferguson’s United side from 2001 to 2005, said he was surprised by the ease with which his current club won the first match, telling BBC 5 Live: “It was a big shock, especially the performance of them in the first leg.

“I have never seen a Manchester United not create many chances.”

Even so, the 36-year-old Northern Ireland international believes United remain very capable of turning the tie around in the second leg, despite their poor home form under Moyes.

“At Old Trafford, it has been very disappointing for them this season,” he said. “They have lost a lot of games and let a lot of goals in.

“We have great respect for them. We know what they can do. If we can keep them quiet hopefully the fans will get on the back of the players and make them more nervous.

“We have to go out like we did at home and attack Manchester United. We have to defend well because a strike-force like Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie can score at any time. Manchester United can turn it around. It is very important for our players to go out and try to get a goal.”
