Under-fire Moyes has two games left to save his job

David Moyes has two games to save his job as Manchester United manager, with Old Trafford insiders believing that his days are numbered.

The Scot is on the ropes after Sunday's bruising defeat to Liverpool and he could be on the way out in a week's time if United exit the Champions League at the hands of Olympiakos this week and then suffer another home reverse in next Tuesday's Manchester derby.

Moyes was initially expected to see out the season at Old Trafford and then get the opportunity to rebuild in the summer with a substantial transfer budget, but it's understood that the club are beginning to seriously doubt whether he should be entrusted with responsibility for overhauling the squad.

The struggles of his two keynote signings, Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata, have failed to strengthen the case for Moyes' retention.

David Moyes' future

Should David Moyes be sacked as manager of Manchester United?

  • Yes, he's clearly not the man for the job 0%
  • No, he should be given time to build his own team 0%

Sources close to the club have indicated that Moyes may not survive until the summer, with a big response required in the next two games or else urgent action will be taken.

However, one option that has been discounted is a return for Alex Ferguson, who was in the stands as a confident Liverpool side dismantled the Premier League champions. He considers his time to have passed and will not emulate Matt Busby by emerging from retirement to take control again.

Meanwhile, former Ireland international Kevin Sheedy has landed himself in the middle of the Moyes debate by publicly stating that the under-fire boss had little interest in the Everton academy during his time in charge at Goodison Park. Sheedy, who works as a youth team coach with the Merseysiders, wrote on his Twitter page that 'Moyes was never interested in our youth team or players. In seven years, Moyes showed no interest in our team.'

The tweet was subsequently deleted but Sheedy stood over the comments when users of the social media site asked questions related to the original remark.
