Having lost the important Manchester Derby, Manchester United seems to be imploding after reports emerge that Ryan Giggs has fallen out with David Moyes and is a part of the ‘Class of 92’ ensemble that is planning to take over the Old Trafford.
Reports emerge from the Old Trafford that United’s most decorated player has fallen out with David Moyes over the latter’s training methods. Former Manchester United goal-keeper Mark Bosnich has revealed that he has heard storng rumours suggesting that Ryan Giggs along with other senior players have fallen out with David Moyes.
“It has been obvious for some time that things are not quite right there. I’m hearing very strong rumours that Ryan Giggs has had a falling out with the management and that is a real shame because that is somebody there with exceptional experience.”
Bosnich believes that Manchester United will be deeply affected at having lost someone of Giggs’ experience and the Board could be forced to take actions against David Moyes in the light of the recent developments.
“There are things seeping out that things are not well behind the scenes. The fact that a lot of old players are coming out [blaming Moyes], like Paul Scholes, tells me there are definitely problems behind the scenes.”
“The board have to back the manager while he is employed by the club, but they must be concerned behind the scenes with how things are going.”
“I mentioned those rumours about Giggs and I don’t think he is the only one, so there are massive amount of problems there and they need to be sorted quickly.”
Things definitely dont seem to be looking up for David Moyes who lost yet again at Old Trafford as fans threatened to tear down his ‘chosen one’ banner at the stadium. The disaster was averted only after the stewards were deployed and reports also suggest that the fans turned against former manager Sir Alex Ferguson for having appointed Moyes as the new boss at United.
Manchester United have lost both their trusted CEO and manager in one season and many believe that both David Moyes and Ed Woodward are not cut out for the top job at United. Coupled with the fact that the Glazers are the owners of the club, fans have expressed concern regarding the fate of the Red Devils, so much so that reports emerged that the Class of 92, led by David Beckham would be bidding to acquire their boyhood club from the grasp of their current American owners. It is believed that David Beckham, backed by the other members of the Class of 92 along with a Qatari firm will be bidding for United however these rumours have been strongly denied by those at the Old Trafford.
Though it is no secret that the fans are not happy with the Glazers and are concerned regarding the debt, club insiders have assured that Manchester United is not up for sale and that the Glazers remain very much interested in the club.
Though these rumours remain unfounded, troubled times indeed await Manchester United, as proclaimed by former captain Roy Keane. The Irishman believes that a lack of leadership in the dressing room has greatly affected Manchester United and has asked experienced players such as Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand to take charge of the dressing room. He believes that things will get a lot worse before becoming better as German champions Bayern Munich pay them a visit next week.
“It’s not going to get any easier in next couple of months with a bit more pain to come, against Bayern Munich next Tuesday. I think United will be all right and David Moyes will get plenty of time. The man deserves it.”
Though many former players have backed the manager, the fact remains that both David Moyes and the players have failed to satisfy the fans this season and heads will roll come summer. It now remains to be seen who stays and who leaves the Old Trafford.
