A banner reading 'WRONG ONE - MOYES OUT' will fly over Old Trafford at the start of the Aston Villa game on Saturday, an aerial advertising company has confirmed.

Reports that a group of Manchester United fans were trying to raise funds to fly the message over Manchester United's home ground emerged on Thursday, but with no fan group claiming responsibility, it was cast aside as hearsay.

However, the aerial advertising company Air Ads has confirmed that they will indeed be flying the banner over during the Premier League clash but can not confirm who has paid for the service.

"It was middle of the week when we took the enquiry," Chris Mustow, chief pilot of Air Ads, told Manchester Evening News.

"They want it around kick-off, just after kick-off. It will be around 15 minutes overhead.

"No they didn't [say who the banner was the idea of] - it was just an individual They tend to be a bit cagey."

Low flying rules mean the aircraft will have to be at least 1000 feet above the stadium at all times. They company have used extra large letters to make sure the message can be clearly read by all, even from the Manchester United dugout.

"We have had to use extra large letters just to make sure everybody can see it," said Mustow.

The banner will cost the Manchester United fans around £800, emphasising just how strongly some of the Old Trafford feel about David Moyes' continued management of the club.

Small sections of Red Devils fans are starting to turn on the club as they continue to struggle after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. Frustrations culminated on Tuesday night after United lost 3-0 at home to their rivals Manchester City in what was considered a listless performance from the reigning Premier League champions.
