A select round-up of news relating to Manchester United…
Another day, another disappointment for Manchester United fans, as they wake up to the realisation that the performance against Olympiakos in the Champions League was not a dream.
After losing 2-0 in the first-leg of the last-16 tie, David Moyes said he was to blame and not his players.
“I take responsibility,” the United boss said. “It’s my time.”
However, he did then go on to say that he was surprised by the performance of his players.
“I didn’t see that level of performance coming. I just didn’t see it,” he said.
“It’s the worst we’ve played in Europe. We didn’t offer enough on the night to create a goal.”
Former United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich has also had his say on the performance in an interview with Talk Sport.
The former Australian international said, “Man United were outthought, outfought and outplayed against Olympiakos. I was lost for words.
“There are players out there right now who know they’re either not going to be there next year or don’t want to be there. The sooner he sorts them out the better.
“They do need to go through the team with a broom and completely clear it out.”
That is a feeling felt by many fans and pundits alike, with Roy Keane commenting last night that Moyes needed six new players to turn this team around.
