During the end of the 2012/13 Premier League season, Sir Alex Ferguson announced that he would be stepping down as Manchester United manager to retire.
Shortly after this announcement United agreed a deal to bring fellow Scot David Moyes to the Theatre of Dreams.
Ferguson backed Moyes
Sir Alex expressed how he believed in Moyes and for the fans to give him time and support the new number one.
But just nine months into his long-term contract with the club, the United board decided to relieve Moyes of his duties and bring in Ryan Giggs as caretaker manager until the end of the season.
Moyes was on a hiding to nothing
Moyes had a successful start to his career as United defeated Swansea at the Liberty Stadium 4-1 on the opening day of the season, but after that certain results didn't go in United's favour and the fans quickly turned against him.
But it couldn't have been easy as Moyes was trying to follow in the footsteps of the man who changed United's history.
Sir Alex was at the majority of games looking down at his successor which must of added pressure to the new man in charge.
Although Sir Alex had left the Red Devils, his figure never did and with him attending a lot of games the fans can only judge the new manager as they look at their former leader.
Moyes treated unfairly
Moyes was unfairly treated in Manchester and his dismissal has only tarnished him as a manager, starting off at Preston and then going to Everton where he really made a name for himself all of the good he had done in his career has been wiped from the memory of football fans.
Moyes is now without a club and for a manager of his stature it shouldn't be hard for another club to snap him up, but saying that United haven't helped him at all.
