Watch: David Moyes makes incredibly awkward mistake in post-match interview

David Moyes took on the role of Sunderland manager back in July in the hope that he could rebuild his reputation in English football.

However, now three months into the job, the Scotsman has done very little to suggest he can bounce back from what were disappointing spells at Manchester United and Real Sociedad.

His Sunderland side is yet to win a Premier League game and, during their 1-0 defeat to Southampton in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night, Moyes was sent to the stands by match official Chris Kavanagh.

You might think things couldn't get much worse for the former Everton boss but that's before you watch his post-match interview from last night's game where, somehow, Moyes managed to embarrass himself even further.

With his side trailing 1-0 at St. Mary's, Moyes was left furious after seeing a late penalty call waived away by Kavanagh. It was his angry reaction to this - and foul language directed at fourth official James Adcock - that saw him sent to the stands for the final stages of the EFL Cup tie.

However, while Moyes had plenty of reason to remember the match official after the dramatic last few minutes of the game, it doesn't look like the Scottish manager was paying too much attention to who was giving him his marching orders...

He really doesn't help himself sometimes!

From his confident proclamation that he doesn't know who Kavanagh is to the awkwardly long silence before the post-game reporter tells him, the video is only going to further the opinion that Moyes simply isn't cut out to be a top-flight manager these days.

Winless in the league since returning from a failed attempt to resurrect his career in Spain, Moyes is under increasing pressure to turn things around, and fast.

However, with another defeat to chalk up after last night's action, things are already looking bleak for the man once touted as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor at Old Trafford.

With speculation already doing the rounds that former Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce could be set for a shock return to the Stadium of Light, Moyes needs to get things moving in the right direction as soon as possible.

A likely touchline ban for his actions on Wednesday - actions for which he did apologise - isn't going to help things.

Neither is embarrassing himself in front of the Sky cameras.
