The Manchester United boss David Moyes has finally admitted that he needs to land new faces at Old Trafford.
United’s disastrous season continued last weekend as they got defeated by the low profile Swansea City side in the third round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford. The match was going towards a draw, but, a 90th minute strike by the Ivorian forward Bony made sure that the Red Devils would suffer yet another home defeat. Now, United has lost as many as 5 games at Old Trafford this season.
United was reduced to 10 players towards the end of the match as one of their defenders Fabio Da Silva was shown Red Card in the 80th minute, but, they can’t use that as an excuse.
Talking to the reporters in the press conference after the game against Swansea City, Moyes said, “Yes, we need to bring in new guys, but, if the guys we want are available at this point of time or not, that’s the main thing. I don’t think they are available and that’s why I don’t want to create too much hype over the new signings.”
Moyes had decided to rest some of his regular players including Michael Carrick and Patrice Evra for Sunday’s game and that proved to be costly for the team. When asked about that decision of his, the Scot said, “The players who were out there were all quality players. It’s just that we couldn’t execute our plans well.”
Since his arrival at Old Trafford this summer, Moyes has signed just one big player i.e. Marouane Fellaini and he too is not playing at the moment as he is suffering from wrist injury. He has recently undergone surgery and he is not supposed to come back very soon.
