David Moyes releases statement

Manchester United manager speaks out for the first time since sacking

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has spoken out for the first time since being sacked by the club yesterday.

After a poor season at Old Trafford, Moyes lost his job yesterday morning

after holding meetings with the club’s board and until today, the Scot

had remained silent on the matter, but for the first time, he he

released a formal statement.

Read the full transcript below.

«To have been appointed as manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest

football clubs in the world, was and remains something of which I will

always be incredibly proud. Taking charge after such a long period of

continuous stability and success at the club was inevitably going to be a

significant challenge, but it was one which I relished and never had a

second thought about taking on. The scale of the manager’s job at United

is immense, but I have never stepped away from hard work and the same

applies to my coaching staff. I thank them for their dedication and

loyalty throughout the last season.

«We were fully focused and committed to the process of the fundamental rebuilding that is required for the senior squad. This had to be achieved whilst delivering positive

results in the Barclays Premier League and the Champions League.

However, during this period of transition, performances and results have

not been what Manchester United and its fans are used to or expect, and

I both understand and share their frustration.

«In my short time

at the club I have learnt what special places Old Trafford and

Carrington are. I would like to thank the United staff for making me

feel so welcome and part of the United family from my first day. And of

course thank you to those fans who have supported me throughout the

season. I wish you and the club all the best for the future. I have

always believed that a manager never stops learning during his career

and I know I will take invaluable experience from my time as United’s

manager. I remain proud to have led the team to the quarter finals of

this year’s Champions League and I remain grateful to Sir Alex Ferguson

for believing in my ability and giving me the chance to manage

Manchester United.»
