Don't just blame David Moyes, says ex-United star

Manchester United's senior players like Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra must take more responsibility for the team's performances - not just David Moyes.

That's according to former-Manchester United striker Louis Saha. The Frenchman believes United fans should not lay to blame for the club's poor form exclusively at the door of Moyes.

The embattled Old Trafford boss came in for criticism again last night after the 2-0 defeat to Olympiacos in the Champions League last-16 first-leg.

But Saha thinks it is not just Moyes's fault.

"Ryan Giggs and others who have so much experience like Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra, are top players," Saha told talkSPORT.

"I think they are the ones who should help the manager. They're missing some spark. There is a lack of urgency and as a result the performance [against Olympiacos] was flat.

"I think the players should look at themselves."

The defeat in Greece has only served to heap more pressure on Moyes, who is struggling in his first season as United boss.

The defending Premier League champions currently sit in seventh in the table, and face a battle to even qualify for next year's Champions League competition.

Reports have suggested that Moyes will be provided with a massive transfer kitty for this upcoming summer, and Roy Keane said last night that he believes United need at least six or seven new players.
