David Moyes ‘furious and disgusted’ with Manchester United

Published 8 Comments

David Moyes was reportedly left ‘furious and disgusted’ by the manner in which Manchester United unceremoniously sacked him on Tuesday morning.

The Scot was dismissed after less than a year in the job after a dreadful debut campaign at Old Trafford, which saw the Red Devils go from Premier League champions to a team struggling to secure a Europa League spot in the space of 11 months.

However, despite his troublesome reign, the Mirror report that Moyes is livid about the way he was relieved of his duties.

Rumours that Moyes was poised to lose his job became widespread via the media on Easter Monday afternoon - but the former Everton boss was not told he was being sacked until early on Tuesday morning.

Moyes is angry that United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and other club officials refused to inform him before the press were made aware his time with the Red Devils was coming to an abrupt end.

The 50-year-old was even working on four deals for new players on the morning Woodward informed him of his fate.

Moyes, who is poised to receive around £4.5m in severance pay from Manchester United - roughly one years wages - will now take time to consider his options.

In the meantime, Ryan Giggs has been appointed as the club’s interim manager and will take charge of his first match against Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.
