PHOTO: United remove Moyes from season ticket campaign

Manchester United have been quick to address the dismissal of David Moyes, who was sacked by the club last Tuesday.


Manchester United have been quick to move on from the sacking of manager David Moyes, and have now removed his images from the clubs ticketing campaign images.

Moyes was sacked on Tuesday after less than a year in charge at Old Trafford following poor results and reports that senior players had lost faith in the Scot.

United took to their official Twitter feed earlier in the week to announce the news of Moyes’ departure, despite widespread speculation almost 24 hours before the confirmation.

The club have moved quickly to rebrand their season ticket renewal campaign, removing Moyes from the image that contains the majority of the current United squad.

The revised image does however feature current interim manager Ryan Giggs, albeit in his playing kit. Giggs was in charge for United’s 4-0 victory over Norwich City on Saturday, and brought a freshness back to the Old Trafford turf, with United displaying plenty of width, energy and attacking purpose.

Giggs is one of many names that have been mentioned as a possible replacement for Moyes as manager, along with the likes of Louis Van Gaal, Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp

United have claimed that no deal has been struck to appoint a new manager, despite reports in the Dutch press on Saturday that claimed United chief executive Ed Woodward flew out to Portugal to tie up a deal with Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal on Friday.

Giggs is seen as the fans' choice to succeed Moyes at Old Trafford, having had a 26-year affiliation with the club. His backroom staff in Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes see a host of the former players taking the dug-out to perpetuate the family feel in the running of the club.

Should Giggs win his three remaining games in charge of the team this season, he may well get the opportunity to take on one of the biggest jobs in football.
