"Moyes wasn't Supported by United Players" – Roy Keane



Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has accused the clubs players and the chief executive Ed Woodward of failing David Moyes during his turbulent and brief reign in the Old Trafford hot-seat.
The outspoken Keane believes Moyes should have been given more time to revive Uniteds fortunes, as he told ITV Sport that the.lack of backing from several areas of the club was crucial to the downfall of the Scottish tactician.
I think its a shame, stated Keane when asked about Uniteds decision to dispense with the services of Moyes. I think he should have been given more time and some of the players at Man United should be ashamed of themselves. I think they really let him down.
He certainly had a hard start last summer when he took the job.
The chief executive [Woodward] didnt get the deals done that he [Moyes] wanted and it created a lot of negativity. They had a slow start and no momentum
For David Moyes to finish seventh in the league, hell be disappointed with that, but you still need people around you to help you in every way they can and he has certainly not had that, especially from the players. I think he deserved a bit more time, definitely.
Keane, who serves as the Republic of Ireland’s assistant manager, went on to defend the role of Sir Alex Ferguson in the appointment of Moyes, even though the retired boss took responsibility for naming
the ex-Everton manager as his successor at United last summer.
Keane and Ferguson had a famous falling out in their final days together at Old Trafford, but he offered this defence of Uniteds legendary manager as he claimed the club as a whole need to take responsibility for the failure of Moyes.
I wouldnt necessarily say it was his [Fergusons] pick of Moyes, argued Keane. He obviously put his name forward and the club had to make the decision. You cant be too critical of Alex Ferguson.
Reports in several British newspapers on Wednesday suggest that both Ferguson and his fellow United director Sir Bobby Charlton will again be consulted in the selection of the next United manager.
