The League Managers’ Association (LMA) have issued a statement in which they say that United were guilty of behaving in an “unprofessional manner” in the way they handled the firing of David Moyes yesterday.
Everyone knew on Monday afternoon that Moyes was going to be sacked, but it was not until a meeting with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward on Tuesday morning that he was actually told he was being let go.
“The LMA is very disappointed with the nature of David’s departure from Manchester United, and to read extensive reports in the press confirming David’s sacking before David himself had been spoken to officially by the club,” said LMA chief executive Richard Bevan.

David Moyes has issued a statement through the League Managers Association in which he says that the job was ‘immense’ and he thanks everyone BUT the players.
‘To have been appointed as manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest football clubs in the world, was and remains something of which I will always be incredibly proud.
‘Taking charge after such a long period of continuous stability and success at the club was inevitably going to be a significant challenge, but it was one which I relished and never had a second thought about taking on.

Gary Neville has blasted Manchester United for the way they handled the sacking of David Moyes.
Reports of Moyes’ imminent departure emerged on Monday afternoon and Neville was sad that the Scot’s exit proved to be an undignified one.
“The last 15, 16 hours or however long it’s been, I don’t like it, it’s not the way in which the club should portray itself,” the former right-back, who won eight Premier League titles with United, told Sky Sports News.
“But it’s the modern world, it’s how things seem to be dealt with now, but I’m a traditionalist and I think it could have been dealt with a whole lot better.

After only nine months, Manchester United has ended the reign of David Moyes, firing him today. The official statement from the club said simply:
Manchester United has announced that David Moyes has left the Club.
The Club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role.
United legend Ryan Giggs will take over until a permanent is made.
David Moyes rued conceding what he described as “two poor goals” on the counter-attack after his Manchester United side had dominated possession against Everton at Goodison Park.
The boss returned to his high-flying former club hoping the Reds could get a result to help spark a strong finish to a disappointing campaign. Ultimately, he was left further frustrated that his players couldn’t find the killer instinct to match some positive possession play.
“We gave away two terrible goals,” Moyes admitted. “But I thought prior to that we passed the ball brilliantly well. We kept the ball and had great control of the game. What we couldn’t do was create enough chances. They were two poor goals to give away, both on the break.
Some interesting comments from Juan Mata about joining United and next. Many so called pundits have started to come out and say that without Champions League football that United will struggle to attract the best players this summer.
Well the signing of Mata in January showed that was not necessarily true saying:
“When I was in my situation at Chelsea, not playing, everyone I spoke with in football said, ‘Yeah, maybe Manchester United aren’t at their best this season – but it’s still Manchester United!’
Wayne Rooney is BACK for Manchester United’s trip to Everton – to take some of the heat off manager David Moyes.
Rooney was forced to take a painkilling injection in a badly-bruised toe so he could play in United’s 3-1 Champions League exit to Bayern Munich two weeks ago.
It was feared the striker would need an enforced period of rest to get over the injury, with boss Moyes admitting Rooney was struggling to kick the ball with his shooting foot.
Manchester United have added a fourth USA game to its tour this summer as the Premier League giants have announced that they will play the LA Galaxy at the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, California, on Wednesday 23 July 2014.
Manchester United’s automotive partner Chevrolet will be the match sponsor for this fixture with the teams facing each other in the Chevrolet FC Cup. This match will be the first time that the United team will play in Chevrolet-branded shirts as the global automobile car manufacturer embarks on its seven-year partnership as the club’s new shirt sponsor.

David Moyes is being placed under greater pressure at Manchester United as the club’s owners, the Glazer family, are demanding Europa League qualification, according to ESPN.
While ESPN FC reports say that David Moyes has not been given anything like an ultimatum, reaching European competition is now seen by the club’s owners as a major target for the remainder of the season.
Although there is an external perception that a lack of continental football may actually aid the side next season, as has been the case in this campaign with Liverpool’s title challenge, that is not the view at the top levels of the club. The Glazers see such games as exceptionally significant in terms of revenue, particularly given the level of attendance that United usually guarantee.
