He’s guided Manchester United into the last eight of the Champions League, but David Moyes still hasn’t got the rub of the green, with Lee Sharpe claiming the Scot may not be given the time to complete the rebuilding process at Old Trafford.


Sharpe, who played for United between 1988-96 as a winger, revealed his displeasure at Moyes getting the job in the first place, and that he wanted to see a bit of creativity injected into the coaching staff,

“I was a bit concerned when Moyes first got appointed,” Sharpe told talkSport, “I fancied someone a bit more creative.

“Someone who would bring something a little bit different to the club, like Arsene Wenger at Arsenal or Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool. Moyes is very similar to Fergie.”

United’s 3-0 win over Olympiakos last night was arguably the perfect response to last weekend’s drubbing at the hands of Liverpoolm but when asked whether Moyes will still be in the job come the summer, Sharpe said: “I’m not sure.

“If they’ve got £100mililion to spend on transfers, I’m not sure you are going to give it to him to spend.

“If they’re still in the same position in the January transfer window next year, do you then give someone else a load of money?

“They are going to have to buy a whole new back four, because there’s a few of them going, and a couple of midfielders. I’m not sure about the buys he brought in already. He’s spent £60million and I don’t think he’s spent well.”

United fans have taken to Twitter to continue to call for the Scot’s head, with last night’s win barely buying the beleaguered boss a moment’s breath from the struggles of his maiden season at the helm.

What do you think? Agree with Sharpe? Will Moyes be allowed to spend so much money in the summer? Let me know in the comments below…
