Ferdinand Slams Moyes

After several other Manchester United stars, now, Rio Ferdinand has also slammed David Moyes for his 1-year work as manager at Old Trafford.
According to the veteran centre back, Moyes’ mentality was not right. He did not realize how big a club he was in charge of.
In his autobiography which will be out for the public soon, Ferdinand has put a bit of light on that unsuccessful season of United under David Moyes.
A couple of paragraphs of the book were published in one of the English dailies yesterday.
In Ferdinand’s words, “David’s tactics confused the players. He wanted us to play weirdly at times. In a match at Old Trafford, I think it was against Fulham, we were just giving each other long crosses. We did that more than 80 times that day. I never understood the point of doing that. It was a mindboggling strategy.”
“On other days, he would tell us to make as many passes as we could. He used to tell us to make 600 passes. I mean it was ridiculous. You’ve got to think about scoring goals, not just about making passes. If you are finding the back of the net 2 or 3 times from 15 passes, it’s far better than making 100 passes and scoring no goal.”
The Manchester United hierarchy axed Moyes towards the end of the last season and gave the job to Ryan Giggs temporarily before bringing in Louis Van Gaal as the permanent man-in-charge.
United is struggling a little bit under Van Gaal as well, but, at least under him, they are trying to play attacking football.
The Red Devils have 1 win and a couple of draws to their name in the 4 Premier League games this season.
