Former AC Milan goalkeeper Zeljko Kalac: “Look, if I was a Man United supporter and was running the club, I’d say he’s definitely out. Because a club of that size, that magnitude and that support can’t have failure like that.”
Robbie Savage of The Mirror: “With heavy heart, but few alternatives, I’ve changed my mind about David Moyes.
“Moyes looks a pale, frightened man consumed by the pressure. I’m at the point now where I believe the job is too much for him. When my 10-year-old boy asks why Juan Mata is playing on the right and Marouane Fellaini on the left, and I have to tell him that I’ve no idea, something is badly wrong.
“United didn’t spend £65m on those two players to use them in a formation so alien to their talents, so what is the point of giving their manager another £200m in the summer if there is no clear purpose behind the spree?”
Aston Villa Manager Paul Lambert takes a different outlook:
“Some of the criticism is way over top.
“He has a huge job – and it’s not as if he is standing there feeling good – he’s fuming like anyone else.
“For him to receive that level of criticism is not nice. Flying a plane over stadium saying he’s not wanted is a bit extreme.
“I fully expect him to remain Manchester United boss.”
