Manchester United stars losing faith in Moyes

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager David Moyes faces a battle to convince members of the Red Devils' playing squad of his credentials after the team slumped to their third consecutive defeat this week, according to the Guardian.

It's reported that some inside the United dressing room are unsure whether Moyes, who replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford in the summer, is capable of reversing the team's current fortunes.

In the space of seven days, United suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham in the Premier League, a 2-1 home defeat to Swansea City in the FA Cup third round and a 2-1 loss to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg.

Results over the first half of the 2013/14 season mean the club have virtually no chance of retaining the Premier League title, while the odds are currently stacked against them in their battle to secure a top-four finish.

The fear of missing out on Champions League qualification is believed to be a major concern inside the Manchester United dressing room - and, unless results improve soon, more questions will inevitably be asked about Moyes' suitability for one of the biggest jobs in world football.
