Jamie Carragher: It’s inevitable Man United will sack David Moyes

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United will axe David Moyes after Monday's speculation

Jamie Carragher believes it is inevitable that David Moyes will be sacked by Manchester United after Monday’s speculation.

The 50-year-old has been widely tipped to get the chop by the local and national media after a 2-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.

But there are times when a manager becomes untenable

Carragher was part of the Liverpool squad when Roy Hodgson was axed after a brief six-month spell in charge of the Reds, who struggled to perform under the current England boss.

And the Reds legend feels there is no belief that United can improve with Moyes at the helm as Louis van Gaal and Jurgen Klopp continue to be linked with the Old Trafford post.

“I think it is inevitable in terms of what has come out today,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“For all the local journalists to come out with that story straightaway means it has obviously been leaked from the club and something has come out.

“You could say it isn’t the Manchester United way, but for everyone to do that, something has come out.

“I’ve always said that David Moyes should be given at least 18 months or two years to buy his own players and do things his own way but there are times when a manager’s position becomes untenable.”

Carragher continued: “We [Liverpool] had Roy Hodgson come in. He doesn’t start well but let’s give him in time.

“But the results and performances are so poor, it becomes untenable. Hodgson lost his job and that isn’t the Liverpool way.

“Watching United, I don’t think any of the performances or results give you hope or belief that things are going to improve.”
