David Moyes having 'nightmares' over Man United

Published 1 Comments

Respected football pundit Chris Kamara believes David Moyes will be having sleepless nights over Manchester United's poor form.

Moyes replaced the irreplaceable Sir Alex Ferguson at the helm of Manchester United but has since failed to replicate the title-winning form his predecessor inspired.

With fans hungry for instant success, the Scotsman has been accused of sitting on the laurels of his new contract and doesn't have the passion for victory that Ferguson had.

But Kamara, who knows Moyes well, insists that the conundrum he is facing at Old Trafford will be giving him nightmares.

Kamra told the Daily Star: "David Moyes will be having nightmares. I know him very well, he lives and breathes football.

"People may look at it and he say can't be that bothered because he's earning all that money - but money doesn't come into it. Money is the icing on the cake.

"It's that desire to be good at your job and to be successful which drives you on.

"He'll be more determined than ever to put that right - he won't be sleeping right now."

Manchester United have already lost eight times in the Premier League this season and have dropped 15 points off leaders Arsenal. More concerningly, they remain seven points off of fourth place–the last Champions League qualifying spot.

Kamara believes United's poor form would have given Moyes doubts about his ability.

"He will be having self doubt," Kamara said.

"It's all about results. If you're not getting results you know what can happen in this game. It's always inevitable.

"For a company like Manchester United, you have to finish in the top four.

"That's a hell of a lot of money they're going to lose if they don't. It would come into question how brave they can be.

"You see some of the sackings with Steve Clarke and Michael Laudrup.

"He wins the Capital One Cup with Swansea and all of a sudden he's out of the picture - that's the nature of the game.

"You would hope David has time on his side but it's different now.

"Everyone looks back at the time Sir Alex had but he was building an empire. Nobody gets that time anymore."
