Manchester United are reported to be considering dispatching extra security for the protection of David Moyes after the club’s manager attracted the ire of supporters near the dugout during the defeat to Manchester City.

The Premier League champions suffered a crushing loss to City on Tuesday evening, their second successive home drubbing by a rival following Liverpool’s victory, and Moyes became the target of abuse from Manchester United fans once more.

It is claimed that one particularly angered fan attempted to storm the dugout in order to confront Moyes, but stewards were able to hold them back from reaching the beleaguered Manchester United boss. now reports that added security measures at Old Trafford may now be taken.

Aston Villa will provide the next home opposition for Manchester United and security bosses could instruct extra stewards to guard the staff and players during the game.

Moyes has not been the only one to be on the receiving end of anger from the supporters, with some now reported to be turning their attention towards Sir Alex Ferguson, who has been watching from the directors’ box.

Manchester United acted on the wishes of Ferguson when they appointed Moyes at the end of last season, and some of their infuriated support vocally questioned the wisdom of their former manager after the trouncing dished out by City.
