Reports: David Moyes to be fired as Manchester United manager

Less than a year after he took over as Manchester United’s manager, reports now suggest that David Moyes is set to be fired by the team. Moyes took over for Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired after the 2013 season. The 50-year-old Moyes was Ferguson’s handpicked successor.

David MoyesMoyes’ first season at United has been an absolute disaster. The Red Devils are currently seventh in the Barclays Premier League standings, with 17 wins, six draws and 11 losses. Considering United won the title last year and returned virtually the same roster, that is simply unacceptable.

On top of a terrible performance in the league, United was also knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round by Swansea City in an embarrassing 2-1 home loss at Old Trafford. The Devils were then knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich, losing 4-2 on aggregate. That means the team will finish the year without a trophy, something unthinkable in Manchester.

Moyes came to United after 11 seasons in charge at Everton. While the head man of the Toffees, Moyes was named the League Managers Association Manager of the Year three times (2003, 2005 and 2009). He was a former pupil of Ferguson and a natural successor to him at Manchester United. But clearly things haven’t worked out.

Multiple reports now suggest that Moyes will be sacked and that the Glazer family (who own the club) have been looking to fire him since that January FA Cup loss to Swansea. After United’s impotent 2-0 loss to Everton on Sunday, Moyes’ fate was all but sealed.

Moyes signed a six-year contract with the team over the summer, but prominent figures in the boardroom have lost all faith in him, and many players are said to be disillusioned with his leadership. None of this should be surprising, given the team’s lackluster form for most of the season.

There is no word on who will replace Moyes, but you can bet some of the team’s fans will be begging for Ferguson to return to the sidelines.
