David Moyes aims barbs at Ed Woodward by hinting he didn’t understand football

by Sam Peoples

David Moyes has taken a dig at Ed Woodward with some comments he made during an appearance on Goals on Sunday.

Speaking about his time at Manchester United, Moyes covered an array of topics and when question about Woodward he hinted towards him having a lack of football nous.

“There was a new chief executive in place” Moyes discussed.

“David Gill had left which was a real big thing for Manchester United. He was someone who was very important to the club and to how things ticked along at the club.

“In that position you need to understand football, like David Gill.”

For me, Woodward is just as much a part of the problem at Man United now as Louis van Gaal is. He has been responsible for our approaches in the transfer window and the club’s misguided attempts to lure Cesc Fabregas, Thomas Muller and other superstars to Old Trafford, only to leave us short-changed and empty handed.

The quite frankly ludicrous current situation with van Gaal and why he has not been replaced already is baffling from our perspective as fans. One theory suggests Woodward doesn’t want to undermine his own decisions which has created an unwavering, blind loyalty to van Gaal in the hope he turns it around. Whatever it is, there is no logical reason van Gaal is still our manager.

United are a club with major problems that have their roots much deeper than just van Gaal and I think the sooner Woodward is pushed back into the business side of things, the sooner we can have football men making the decisions at our football club.
