Stars must help Moyes insists Saha
Wednesday 26 February 2014
Former Manchester united striker Louis Saha has claimed that the club’s stars are to blame for a misery this season and not new manager David Moyes, the Daily Star reports.
Fans saw an out of sorts United side leave it all to do in the second leg of the last 16 of the Champions League as they crashed to a 2 - 0 defeat at Olympiakos.
Moyes has come in for wide spread criticism but former player Saha believes that mounting pressure is being unfairly heaped soley on the manager’s shoulders in his debut campaign with the champions.
Saha said: “Ryan Giggs and others, who have so much experience like Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra, are top players. I think they are the ones who should help the manager. They’re missing some spark.
"There is a lack of urgency and as a result the performance [against Olympiakos] was flat. I think the players should look at themselves.”
The former Everton man also came under fire for omitting teenager Adnan Januzaj from the match entirely despite super form this season, instead opting to play Tom Cleverley - who has been a target of fans frustration over the cause of the season.
Moyes has defended his decision however and claimed that he made the decision to rest the teen and start Cleverley a week ago.
