Manchester United boss has 12 games to save job

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager David Moyes has 12 games to convince the Glazer family that he should be in charge at Old Trafford next season, according to the Independent.

The Glazers, who handed Moyes a six-year contract last summer, will consider dismissing the beleaguered Scot at the end of the season unless noticeable improvement is seen on the pitch between now and May.

Moyes has struggled in his debut season at Old Trafford and, following Tuesday night's shock Champions League defeat to Olympiacos, there is growing concern amongst supporters that the Manchester United hierarchy appointed the wrong man to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson last summer.

With the Glazers set to hand Moyes as much as £200m to rebuild his creaking squad this summer, United's American owners naturally want the right manager in charge of the club's summer transfer kitty.

Moyes' side are currently 15 points behind Premier League-leaders Chelsea, and 11 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, with 11 matches left to play.

Next month could be a deceive month in Moyes' Manchester United tenure, with games against Liverpool, Manchester City and that second leg against Olympiacos all on the horizon.
