David Moyes Could Be Sacked Soon While Ryan Giggs Would Take Temporary Charge

david moyes1 David Moyes Could Be Sacked Soon While Ryan Giggs Would Take Temporary Charge

David Moyes will be sacked soon after losing the support of the Glazer family, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph newspaper today.

Reporter Mark Ogden, who typically has good sources at Old Traffod, says that senior executives and the Glazer family have lost faith in Moyes, and that yesterday’s 2-0 loss against Everton could be the final straw.

Ogden reports that if Moyes decides to seek assurances from Manchester United Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward before this weekend’s match against Norwich City, it’s unlikely that Woodward will be able to give Moyes any assurances, which then could accelerate Moyes’ departure from the club.

Backroom staff Steve Round, Jimmy Lumsden, Phil Neville and Chris Woods are likely to be sacked too since United executives reportedly believe that the United players have lost confidence in the manager and coaches.

Manchester United are now on course for their worst finish since 1990 when Sir Alex Ferguson’s side finished in 13th position.

Meanwhile, Ogden reports that if Moyes is sacked, it’s expected that Ryan Giggs will take charge on a temporary basis until a permanent replacement can be found.

BBC Sport contacted Manchester United to get their response regarding the developing story, and said they have no comment, which is hardly a vote of confidence or denial from United.
