Manchester United manager David Moyes spent all day Monday locked in crisis talks with his backroom staff at Old Trafford.
According to Goal.com, the 50-year-old Scot - who succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as Red Devils boss last summer - is under increasing pressure following a torrid 2013/14 campaign.
Moyes's reputation is at an all-time low among Manchester United supporters after Sunday's humiliating 3-0 home defeat against arch-rivals Liverpool in the Premier League, which left them in a lowly seventh place in the table, 14 points adrift of the Champions League places.
With attention now turning quickly to Wednesday's last-16 second leg clash with Olympiakos at Old Trafford, where Manchester United will be looking to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit, Moyes and his coaches are looking to engineer an unlikely comeback against the odds.
However, while the manager and his staff were in discussions on Monday, it's understood that a number of Manchester United's most senior players were mocking the former Everton boss' plight, and suggesting that his days in charge were numbered, irrespective of this week's result.
"We’ve never seen this level of contempt for anyone at the club in the past, let alone the manager," stated a Goal.com source.
