David Moyes should be sacked, says former United trainee

Former Manchester United trainee Robbie Savage has revealed he has changed his mind regarding the future of David Moyes.

The BBC pundit has backed Moyes to steady what looks to be a sinking ship during the last few weeks but has today stated in his regular Daily Mirror column that he believes the under-fire Manchester United manager should be given the boot.

Savage's former side are currently languishing in seventh spot, are out of both domestic cup competitions and face a tough Champions League tie against Bayern Munich in the next fortnight.

Moyes has come under a vast amount of stick during the last few days as the north-west outfit have lost heavily to arch-rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in recent weeks.

Some fans have started to call for the former Everton manager's head and Savage has now jumped on the 'Moyes Out' bandwagon.

Savage wrote in his column: "All the way along, I’ve stuck with Moyes because I like the bloke, he’s a terrific man and I believed he deserved a chance to build his own dynasty.

"But in football some jobs are just too big, or they are the wrong fit.

"Just as Roy Hodgson never quite clicked at Liverpool, I fear Moyes and United might be destined to remain square peg and round hole."

Moyes is expected to be given until the end of the season - at the very least - to prove the doubters wrong and restore some kind of pride at Old Trafford.

However some reports suggest the Glazer family are already weighing up potential targets to replace the Scotsman.
