Warnock: It's not all down to Moyes at Manchester United

David Moyes Interview - 23/02/2014

Ex-Leeds United boss Neil Warnock pointed the finger at who he thought was also to blame for Manchester United's disappointing season.

Well-respected, experienced, controversial and rarely quiet - these are just a few adjectives often used to describe former Leeds United, Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock.

To get as many descriptive words attached to your name as Neil Wanrock, it's fair to say that you've probably a little forthright and out-spoken. And Warnock was at it again this week, when taking a call during Alan Brazil's talkSPORT Sports Breakfast.

The 65-year-old gave his verdict on who he thought was to blame at for the mess at Manchester United.

When asked about Moyes's current situation and how long the club will give him, Warnock went on to blame Manchester United's Executive vice-chairman.

'I blame Ed Woodward as much as anybody else,' said Warnock.

'Its just David's at the front foot........ Fans just get onto the one they can see'.

Warnock may have a valid point. It's fair to say that the Bristol-born accountant's first transfer window (last summer), which was labeled a disaster by The Daily Telegraph, set Manchester United up for a hugely underwhelming season.

Largely unpopular midfielder Marouane Fellaini was Manchester United's only genuine first-team acquisition in the summer, which was followed up by Juan Mata in the winter transfer window.

Nevertheless, not one first-team or influential member of the squad left either. So, it is still largely the Premier League winning side from last year, added to by the £65million midfield duo.

Many Manchester United fans will point out, however, that a team containing the likes of Robin Van Persie, David de Gea, Nemanja Vidic, Wayne Rooney and the emerging Adnan Januzaj should be any further up the league table than 6th, regardless of signings.
