Moyes has disrupted Man Utd, says Shakhtar boss
Ahead of his side’s Champions League clash with Manchester United on Wednesday, Shakhtar Donetsk boss Mircea Lucescu has accused opposition manager David Moyes of excessively rotating his squad, the Daily Mirror has reported.
Moyes has overseen three Premier League defeats in six games since replacing Sir Alex Ferguson, with West Bromwich Albion becoming the first team to take all three points from Old Trafford following away disappointment against rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.
The former Everton boss has made many changes to his starting line-ups during his short reign, and Lucescu believes that has contributed to Man Utd’s problems. He said: “We have analysed the games of United and noted there are always some changes.
“You can always see four or five new players and, because of this rotation, the links between players are not always very good. Turnover creates a lot of problems for them. In the Ukrainian championship we are not rotating the squad as much as United, so maybe that is why we have been more secure.”
Man Utd arrive at the Donbass Arena to face the Ukrainian champions having won their opening Champions League game against Bayer Leverkusen, while Shakhtar were also winners on Match day one, away to Real Sociedad.
