David Moyes admitted after the 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich that Manchester United have had ‘quiet’ discussions with other players about moving to Old Trafford in the summer.
Manchester United’s put in a valiant performance tonight against Bayern Munich but it wasn’t enough and it is now unlikely that we will play Champions League football until at least the 2015/16 season.
Moyes is now looking towards rebuilding a squad who will be able to get back into the Champions League and showed every confidence that he will be in charge to make it happen.
Speaking in his post-match press conference, he said: “Well just as I’ve said there, I think that the ones who someone might have had a word in their ear have all been keen to come because it’ll be a short thing, it won’t be a long thing, and are all very keen to join such a great club.”
A quiet word Moyes? Is that not tapping up?
Speaking to Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves after the game, he said: “Any players we’ve quietly discussed with are happy to join Manchester United.
When questioned about rebuilding the squad, Moyes added: “Well, we’ve not got Champions League football that’s the way that it looks but I believe that it’s not far away, it’ll hopefully only be the one year the way we go to rebuild, our focus now is getting a team which can make sure that is back in this competition because it’s a great competition.
“We’ve really enjoyed it, there’s no shame in going out in the quarter finals to Bayern Munich tonight because they are a good side and the players have played really well so it shows the qualities we’ve got, we’ll do that, we’ll regroup and we’ll start building back to being back in the competition again.”
