David Moyes has angered fans with his comments that the tradition of Manchester United appointing British managers “has now gone.” Moyes is set to face his old club when United host Sunderland at Old Trafford, and was speaking about his time at United ahead of the game.

According to ESPN, Moyes said, “Manchester United was a club with a tradition where they tended to pick British managers. That tradition has now gone. They were a football club who enjoyed traditions with the way they spent. They didn’t try to compete with all the other clubs. They did what they thought was the right thing to do and spent the right way. I can say that’s gone. There have been changes but that’s the way they have chosen to go.”

Moyes also revealed that the club missed out on several key targets during his time there, including the likes of Gareth Bale, Cesc Fabregas and Toni Kroos.

United fans were unimpressed by Moyes comments and took to Twitter to voice their frustration.

Fans also had their own theories on why he failed to land any of his transfer targets, and didn’t think signing those players would have made a difference.
