Manchester United Boardroom Contemplating Replacing David Moyes as Manager: Daily Soccer Report

Key members of Manchester United’s boardroom are contemplating replacing David Moyes as manager, while Louis van Gaal has been tipped as a potential replacement, according to sources to ESPN.

According to the report, members of the Glazer family are now more open to considering the replacement of Moyes especially if United stumble in their next three matches — home to Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League tomorrow, against West Ham this weekend and against Manchester City next week.

ESPN FC reports that “The Glazers are said to have become very ‘nervous’ about the nature of recent performances, let alone the results, with a nadir coming in the 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool. Some United officials now openly maintain that a managerial change is needed. Old Trafford sources also state it has been noted that Sir Alex Ferguson is no longer so vocally backing Moyes at boardroom level, although the former manager is not said to have turned against his replacement. It is also believed Moyes retains the backing of Sir Bobby Charlton.”
