Ex-Liverpool chief Purslow: Gill to blame for Man Utd crisis

Former Liverpool chief Christian Purslow says David Gill deserves part of the blame for Manchester United's dismal campaign.David Moyes was sacked by United this morning.

Purslow told Sky Sports: "David had a number of years working alongside Sir Alex when Manchester United were absolutely dominant in English football - the one big job David was always going to have was when Sir Alex decided to retire.

"For David to announce his departure three months before Sir Alex was a huge mistake - it should never have been allowed to happen.

"It meant that it was July 1 before a new CEO and a new manager had arrived - by then Manchester City had made four top quality signings - and United were always playing catch-up."
