Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has hit out at fans over their criticism of manager David Moyes and his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson. Man United succumbed to another crushing defeat as they lost 3-0 to Manchester City at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, a match which the Red Devils went into with some confidence after back-to-back wins against Olympiacos and West Ham in the Champions League and Premier League respectively. It took less than a minute for Edin Dzeko to penetrate the United defence last night, and soon the fans began to voice their frustration at Moyes and, more surprising, Ferguson, who was instrumental in the appointment of his successor. The pressure from the Man United faithful puts even more pressure on Moyes than there was before, but former goalkeeper Schmeichel, who was a key figure in the famous 1998/99 treble-winning side, has called on fans to continue to support the management. He wrote on his official Twitter account: “Sad to read that fans has turned on Moyes & SAF, I understand everyone’s frustration but I don’t like the reaction. What happened to “We stand UNITED in good and bad times”?”Watch Liverpool v Sunderland Wednesday night. 24 hour Sky Sports Day pass for only 9.99. No contract.
