Manchester United boss denies 'f****** disgrace' comments

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager David Moyes has strongly denied calling the Everton supporters who jeered him at Old Trafford on Wednesday night a "f****** disgrace", according to ESPN.

The accusation was made by an Everton fan who met Moyes after the Red Devils slumped to a 1-0 defeat at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester.

A United spokeswoman confirmed that Moyes had met the fan, as claimed, but categorically denied he had said what was alleged.

The Scot departed Goodison Park at the end of last season on a positive note, following a successful 11-year spell with the Merseyside outfit.

However, he returned in the summer with big-money bids for his former players Marouane Fellaini - who eventually signed for the Red Devils - and left-back Leighton Baines.

This move did not go down well with the Toffees' supporters, hence why he received some vocal abuse during Wednesday night's match.

Their relationship with Moyes was further soured in August, when the United boss told reporters: "If I'd been Everton manager and Sir Alex [Ferguson] had come asking for Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini, I'd have found it very difficult to keep them because I always felt the right thing to do was what was right for the players."

It's expected that Moyes will return with a fresh bid for Baines in January.
