According to Reports, Man Utd Set to Sack Moyes, Replacement Search Already Begun

By on February 25, 2014


According to audacious “exclusive” reports from CaughtOffside, Manchester United are preparing to sack David Moyes following United’s poor performance in Greece last night.

The report argues that Manchester United have run out of patience with their Scottish manager, and are now preparing to arrange a shortlist for his potential replacement.

The report doesn’t account for the fact that all of the evidence points to David Moyes being granted at least a full season at the helm. All of the relevant noises coming out of Old Trafford offer support of the manager and contend that he will remain in charge.

However, recent results – and the frustrations of supporters that are now beginning to be vented towards Moyes – suggest that there may be cracks in United’s iron resolve developing.

One name suggested as a possible replacement is Jurgen Klopp. Although Dortmund have fallen off of the incredible pace set by Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich, Dortmund’s recent European successes remain fresh in the memory. Klopp is clearly an attractive option for a United team that clearly needs refreshing.

Klopp may well feel that he is unlikely to win much domestic silverware with Bayern in the form that they are, and could potentially seek a move.

However, it remains to be seen whether or not there is any evidence to support the claims that Moyes could be on his way out this season at all. What is clear, regardless, is that as Moyes continues to break negative records this year, United’s famous traditional theory of stability is being put to the absolute test this season.
