Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel thinks Old Trafford boss David Moyes is being let down by players who don't care enough about the club.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the former-United keeper said certain Manchester United players should be sold because they are not showing the fight required to play for the Old Trafford club.

“I think more than anything, he [Moyes] should let the players go," Schmeichel (above) told the Daily Mail.

“There are some players in there that are not doing the job and haven’t been doing the job for a bit now.

“To be a Manchester United player, it requires a certain level of performance, mentality and you have got to be proud to be a Manchester United player.

"I just see with five or six players that they don’t care and we [United] have never ever had players that don’t care. You should care."

Schmeichel did not say which Manchester United players he thinks should be sold in the January window, but he said he believes Moyes will be making a statement when he does let them go.

The United boss is expected to be active in the January market, but the former-Old Trafford stopper said Moyes needs to avoid overspending just for the sake of it next month.

The defending Premier League champions are currently ninth in the table, having suffered back-to-back home defeats to Newcastle and Everton in recent weeks.

Moyes replaced Sir Alex Ferguson as United manager over the summer, with the former-boss urging United fans to give the new manager time.
