PHOTO: Two feet? Wayne Rooney slide tackles David Moyes

Manchester United boss hurdles another challenge.

David Moyes has had a terrible season as Manchester United boss, but he continues fighting away. It seems not even Wayne Rooney can bring him down, literally.

By all accounts he tried, when he angled for a move away last summer, and today in training ahead of the Champions League clash with Olympiakos, Rooney did not go easy when his boss mucked in.

Moyes was snapped hurdling a sliding tackle from Rooney, and appeared in good spirits ahead of the encounter, despite the renewed rumours surrounding his job security, having lost 3-0 at home to Liverpool at the weekend.

The Scot knows he cannot afford for his side to put in another limp display as they strive to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg.

The pictures of him getting involved in training are great PR for the beleaguered boss, but he may just be breathing a sigh of relief that Rooney did not bring him down with his challenge, and provide an instant back page photo for the world to see.
