Manchester United have been criticised by the League Managers Association chief, Richard Bevan, over the sacking of David Moyes.
Bevan has hit out at the Manchester club, claiming that it was an injustice for Moyes to learn his fate through the media 12 hours prior to the club actually sacking the Scotsman.
Moyes was sacked on Tuesday morning after a trying 10 months in charge of the Champions. Various reports of the sacking were published prior to the time Ed Woodward had confirmed the sacking to Moyes himself.
Bevan suggests that the event itself was handled in an "unprofessional manner" and, supports Moyes and his display during his time at the club.
A United spokesman has subsequently hit back. They do not to accept that they were in any way unprofessional during the sacking process.
The decision to sack Moyes was made on Monday evening and relayed to the man himself early Tuesday. According to the Daily Star, the club claim that reports of his sacking were released prior to the decision being made by the United board of directors.
United will now play their first game under interim manager Ryan Giggs on Saturday against Norwich. As the Glazers meet to sort out the crisis at the club, Giggs, alongside Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville have convened in order to organise the team for its remaining matches.
For many fans, this is an opportunity to move forward from a disappointing season that many will hope to forget. For others, they will be sad to see the sacking of a man chosen personally by Sir Alex Ferguson.
