Moyes threatens mass clear-out

Shares

MOYES-MATA-2Manchester United manager David Moyes has hinted at a overhaul of his squad in the summer after breaking the club transfer record to sign Juan Mata.

Moyes has sanctioned loan exits for Anderson and Wilfried Zaha while Fabio is on the verge of completing a permanent move to Cardiff City.

Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra are amongst those likely to follow them out of the door in the summer.

“I am not going to accept it,” said Moyes when asked about his plans. “I am disappointed we are not in a much stronger position. I am disappointed with how we have played.

“I, ultimately, take the rap for that. But what I will do is make it right. I am going to get better players in. Unfortunately I don’t think there will be more in January. But it will change.

“I have given every player the opportunity to play and show what they can do. We have had a pretty good chance to have a look at it,” quotes The Guardian.

“The players have to perform. If they want to be here and making sure they have a jersey, they have to show it in the games. Undoubtedly this club wants to be at the top. We want to be challenging. At this moment in time we have failed to do that. We want to do something about it.

“The message this sends, as I said in the summer, is that we’re going for all the best players in the world. Juan is one of those players. He’s a top Spanish player, a top Premier League player and I think if you asked any supporter, no matter what club they support, they would be an admirer.

“There will be more players like Juan in the future, no doubt about that. He plays for Spain, he’s played in big games already for club and country. I do see him fitting in and, hopefully, it doesn’t take him much time.

“But I also still think coming to Manchester United is a big change, for any player or any manager. It’s a big thing and he can’t solve everything.

“I’ve got a big job to do here and a couple of new signings isn’t all that is needed. I think there’s a bigger job to be done but you have to start somewhere. If you asked me what I needed most, I would have said a central midfielder. I could do with a left-back, too, but sometimes you don’t always get the pieces of the jigsaw at the time.

“It’s all part of a rebuilding process.”
