Former United goalkeeper makes harsh comparison between Ferguson and Moyes
Former Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has said that David Moyes reign at the club was like trying to charge an iPhone with a Nokia charger.
Moyes lasted less than a season at Old Trafford after replacing Alex Ferguson following his retirement from management in 2013 with the Scot taking charge of just 51 games before his dismissal in April 2014.
Moyes insisted he inherited an ageing squad at United but Lindegaard seems to suggest that it was simply a clash of styles.
“I didn’t feel it ageing. It felt more like we just couldn’t adjust to a new way of life," Lindegaard told the Evening Standard.
"It seemed like trying to charge an iPhone with a Nokia charger. It just slowly went flat.
"Who was ever going to lift the club after the boss? Moyes and everyone with big influence on United have all been easy targets. And I refuse to be another one pointing at individuals.
"Every time the team has had a single bad result I’ve heard suggestions for new managers, getting rid of half the team and signing new players. I imagine it isn’t easy to work under those circumstances.
"I’ll point at myself and everyone else involved with United. Both on a professional and an emotional level. We were all to blame."None of us could accept changes to our beloved United. All of us thought everything should just stay the same and we’d carry on succeeding."
United have struggled since Ferguson's departure from the club in 2013 and Moyes feels they're no closer to scaling previous heights now than they were during his brief tenure with the club.
“I feel that since I took over to where they are just now, I don’t think there’s an awful lot of difference," he told TalkSport last month.
“When I took over it was needing a change and needing a turnaround of players, and that was all going to take time.
"I feel like in the four years or so since I was managing there, it’s probably not moved on much more. It’s quite similar, they’re still saying there needs to be changes and has to be things done. That time since I felt hasn’t been used awfully well.”
