Keys predicts Moyes' next move? Should axed United boss do a McClaren?

Bein Sports broadcaster explains that the sacked Manchester United manager could leave the country…

"If [David Moyes] 'followed' whoever followed Fergie the job would've been different," explained football commentator Richard Keys in his official blog recently.

Ultimately, the stature of Manchester United, the act of following an icon like Sir Alex Ferguson, the demands placed on him and the inability to react effectively mid-games proved that "it was all too much" for Moyes as he did not "gamble, do something or change it."

Keys continued: "He ended up not being able to do any of it, frozen like a rabbit in headlights."

A 55% win ratio, United's second highest in their history, was not enough to save Moyes his job as 13 losses from 49 matches were deemed unsatisfactory.

The club released the following statement a matter of hours ago: "United would like to place on record it's thanks for the hard work, honest and integrity Moyes brought to the role [but we have] announced that Moyes has left."

Keys then stated that Moyes' career-plan could now involve a move outside of Britain, away from the media glare, akin to how former Manchester United assistant Steve McClaren rebuilt his reputation following his failure as England national manager.

McClaren, 52, went to FC Twente, then VfL Wolfsburg, winning the Eredivisie title with the former.

"I hope he finds his way back into the game. I know he's always wanted to work in Germany. Maybe that chance will come."
