Manchester United boss David Moyes did not care about the youth team or young players while he was managing Everton, according to the Toffees’ Under-18s manager Kevin Sheedy.

Sheedy, who was tweeting hours after Manchester United were beaten 3-0 by Liverpool at Old Trafford, told his 8,300 followers: “In my 7 years moyes showed no intereset (sic) in our youth team”.

He added: “All of you out there moyes was never interested in our youth team or players”.

Both tweets have now been deleted; however, Sheedy also replied to comments and questions made by his followers about Moyes’s management style, while a tweet saying “Punt the ball up to Fellaini. Great viewing,” remains on his timeline.

When one user stated, “heard you didn’t like moyes an (sic) he wasn’t interested in youth players,” Sheedy responded: “Correct on both counts”.

The former Republic of Ireland international, who played 314 matches for Everton during the 1980s and early 90s, also confirmed that Moyes’s refusal to consider young players ‘did his head in’.

All of this hardly makes for good reading for Manchester United supporters, whose club are renowned for nurturing talented young players and helping them develop into world beaters. Moyes has, however, played a key role in bringing through the gifted Belgium-born winger Adnan Januzaj since he replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

However, his handling of England international Wilfried Zaha, who joined the Red Devils in a £15m move from Crystal Palace last year, has concerned pockets of Manchester United faithful.
