Jamie Redknapp: Man United players look unhappy with David Moyes
Jamie Redknapp reckons the Manchester United players are losing faith in Red Devils manager David Moyes
Jamie Redknapp believes the Manchester United players look unhappy with David Moyes after their 11th Premier League defeat this season.
The Red Devils were comprehensively beaten 2-0 by Moyes’s former side Everton after goals from Leighton Baines and Kevin Mirallas on Sunday.
The players look unhappy with David Moyes — they are not performing for him
United’s outside hopes of securing a fourth-place finish have now gone after Arsenal moved 13 points clear thanks to their win at Hull.
And former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp reckons the Scot is struggling to motivate the Red Devils players amid growing uncertainty surrounding his position.
“When I joined Liverpool in 1991, I’d have laughed if you’d said they would go so long without winning the title,” Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.
“But they are the perfect example of how things can go very wrong very quickly. Manchester United are now finding that out. Last season they won the league by 11 points, now they are 23 points behind the leaders.
“The players look unhappy with David Moyes — they are not performing for him. It is a real worry and he needs to get them motivated fast.
He added: “Moyes is clearly a good manager but the move is not working out for him and only the club hierarchy know whether he will be given time to turn things round.
“Manchester United have the reputation of being a club who don’t sack their managers. That is because they had someone in Sir Alex Ferguson who was winning trophies.
“Now that philosophy will be tested more than ever. Liverpool chopped and changed managers so many times and it got them nowhere. Now that is United’s quandary: keep the faith and let Moyes overhaul his declining squad, or give up.”
