David Moyes, ‘The Chosen One’ is facing the imminent sack as Manchester United manager with the owners, the Glazer family, and Ed Woodward, the vice-president, in discussions about whether they should continue with the Scot. Incidentally, He was appointed at the starting of the season while The Grand Old Man Sir Alex Ferguson suggested his name personally to the owners.
United’s 2-0 loss to Everton on Sunday was the latest evidence of his failure to put up a strong display, subsequently the wacky decision saw the daylight. Once Manchester United relives him of his duties before the end of the season, which now seems highly likely, Ryan Giggs might take in temporary charge till the season is over.
Though the club denied disclosing any official statement, the uncanny truth is looming that he won’t be in the charge while United take on Norwich City at Old Trafford on Saturday. A club confidant gave the hint that the other back room members team that David Moyes brought with him from Everton – Steve Round, Phil Neville and Jimmy Lumsden, also set to leave the club. A permanent manager will then be appointed at the end of the season.
After recent loss to Moyes’ yesteryear club Everton, it has been confirmed that Manchester United can’t make into the top four, even the Europa League berth is also at stake. The Glaziers are desperate to overhaul the system as this bizarre conclusion has been drawn. To add more woes, United are set to become the equal worst defending champions in Premier League history, matching the seventh place finish of Blackburn Rovers in 1996.
The social media sites and other media have been flooded by the Red Devils supporters’ comments in favour of ‘The chosen One’ initially. But the hiccup, drooping shoulder made them irked and they vexed their anger time and again. Even the owners came to know from vice president, Ed Woodword that senior United players Robin van Persie, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez, Giggs all are gloomy and murky with Moyes and the backroom team he brought with him from Everton.
Rio Ferdinand, who was not in the squad at Goodison Park, tweeted: “Frustration & disappointment sums up the season so far.” Juan Mata, the fresh recruit by the Scot, wrote on his blog, “I feel very disappointed today. This is how you feel when you spend two weeks waiting for a game, getting ready for it, and then things don’t go the way you wanted. It happened in Goodison Park and the truth is this is not the first time, as you know. I hate this feeling.”
Borussia Dortmund’s Jürgen Klopp, Diego Simeone of Atlético Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain’s Laurent Blanc and the Holland coach, Louis van Gaal, will all be discussed as the next potential permanent United manager. Everton’s Roberto Martínez, who has excelled in Moyes’ old job, would be an outside choice. Might be the Glaziers would rethink before appointing an ex-Everton Manager. Simultaneously, Klopp’s latest comment ‘I am in love with Dortmund’ made the debate a spicy one. Diego Simoene is focussed to attain the pinnacle of La Liga as well as making the Uefa Champions League final date. Hence a remark from him at this juncture is highly unexpected. Other potential managers might get lured by this lucrative offer, but these professional fellows won’t take a hasty decision for sure.
