Everton midfielder Ross Barkley has labelled Roberto Martinez a better tactician than Manchester United boss David Moyes.

Moyes has come under-fire in recent weeks due to Manchester United's poor results throughout the season - with reports suggesting he could be given the boot if results do not improve.

The former Everton boss, who is looking to steer the Red Devils to the quarter-finals of the Champions League tonight, has not even been able to garner support from Toffees star Barkley.

Barkley, 20, who was handed his debut by Moyes in 2011 has taken a swipe at the former Everton by insisting he is happier plying his trade under the Spaniard.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, Barkley said on Moyes and Martinez: "He’s similar to David Moyes as they both like to take over the training session and be the main man.

"But Martinez is more tactical. We do a lot more tactical work which is good for me because I’m young and still learning."

Moyes instead reportedly prefers to focus on maintaining his players' fitness and working on their defensive set-up.

The Manchester United boss will need to deploy an attacking formation tonight if his side are going to have any chance of progressing to the latter stages of Europe's most prestigious competition.
