Manchester United manager hits new low after Tesco job snub

David Moyes's reputation has taken a turn for the worse, following a disappointing debut campaign as Manchester United manager. But, it must come as a surprise - even to him - to see that criticism of his coaching credentials extends as far as Tesco.

The London Metro reports how the supermarket giant joined in with the collective bashing of the beleaguered Red Devils boss, by intimating on Twitter that he wouldn't even qualify for a job with their company.

After suggestions on the social media site that Moyes should start looking for employment elsewhere, a career change by joining the global conglomerate was light-heartedly put forward by one user.

That prompted Tesco's mobile service Twitter account to jump in by proclaiming that the Old Trafford chief would struggle to fit in with the multi award winning company.

"Is there a vacancy for David?" tweeted @FootyAccums on behalf of the Manchester United boss.

"We're award winners here…not sure he'd fit in" was @tescomobile's witty response.

It's no surprise then that Moyes was firm when asked whether he feared for his future as Manchester United manager, reassuring reporters that he had been offered a six-year contract for a reason, and that his appointment had a long-term vision in mind.

The Red Devils return to Champions League action this evening when they welcome Olympiakos to Old Trafford for the last-16 second leg, looking to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg in Greece. Progression to the next round will go some way to strengthening the 50-year-old's position.
