David Moyes trolled in spoof version of Flappy Bird game

Manchester United manager David Moyes has been forced to bare the brunt of numerous jokes, following a disappointing start to his Old Trafford tenure.

With the reigning Premier League champions in a lowly seventh place, and nine points behind Liverpool in the chase for Champions League qualification, it looks like being a season of disappointment for Red Devils supporters.

Just as well then, that one internet nerd has provided fans with a brief moment of respite, after depicting Moyes as the face of a new version of Flappy Bird - an iPhone game that has taken the world by storm in recent weeks.

Instead of an annoying bird, players must guide Manchester United boss Moyes through the course of the season, whilst trying to avoid difficult obstacles along the way.

In an Instagram video - seen above - one player fails to even get the Red Devils chief over the first hurdle (Fulham), which is apt in light of their poor performance which resulted in a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Earlier this week the app was officially pulled following claims from its creator that it had got too out of hand, so what does that say about Moyes' long-term future, particularly if Manchester United continue to drop points at their current rate?!
