David Moyes claims Man United haven’t improved much since his sacking

Have Man United actually progressed?

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has claimed that the Red Devils have not improved all that much since his sacking just under six years ago.

Moyes joined Manchester United from Everton when fellow Scotsman Sir Alex Ferguson decided to call time on his career.

While fans hoped Moyes would be the second coming of Ferguson, he was very much the opposite.

The former Everton boss soon found himself under pressure and was sacked just eight months into his tenure.

His original contract is even still running, with the six-year deal he penned upon joining the club set to expire this summer.

Since Moyes was sacked, Manchester United have hired and fired both Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.

Now, Moyes has given his opinion on the state of the Red Devils and even claimed they haven’t progressed since his tenure.

‘That time since I left hasn’t been used awfully well’

Speaking on TalkSPORT, as cited by the Mail, Moyes claimed that comparing where United were when he was sacked to where they are now, there isn’t ‘an awful lot of difference’.

‘I feel that since I took over to where they are just now, I don’t think there’s an awful lot of difference,’ Moyes explained.

‘When I took over it was needing a change and needing a turnaround of players, and that was all going to take time.

‘I feel like in the four years or so since I was managing there, it’s probably not moved on much more.

‘It’s quite similar, they’re still saying there needs to change and has to be things done.

‘That time since I left hasn’t been used awfully well.’
