Manchester United fans want David Moyes to stay at Old Trafford, despite a disastrous debut campaign, but would prefer Ryan Giggs, Jurgen Klopp or Roberto Martinez over Sir Alex Ferguson as the club’s new manager if the Glazer family made a change this summer.
A poll carried out by YouGov, and published by The Sun, showed that 62% of supporters do not believe Moyes deserves to be sacked at the end of the season - even though the club have suffered their worst campaign of the Premier League era.
However, if the Glazers decided to sack Moyes, then Manchester United supporters would love to see either Giggs, Klopp or Martinez handed the reins at Old Trafford.
Giggs, who has made more appearances for the Red Devils than any other player in history and is still going strong at the age of 40, polled 13 per cent of the votes - the same number as Borussia Dortmund’s highly-rated coach Klopp and Everton’s Spanish boss Martinez, who has gone a fine job at Goodison Park since replacing Moyes last summer.
However, Ferguson, who guided Manchester United to unprecedented success during his 26-year spell at Old Trafford before walking away from the club at the end of last season, only polled 12 per cent of the votes. Perhaps this is because the odds of Ferguson returning are so long it’s barely worth considering, while the chances of the iconic Scot staying for longer than two seasons would be minimal.
For the time being, however, it seems the United faithful are happy to stick with Moyes next season.
