Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand's magazine has been caught out in an embarrassing David Moyes gaffe. Ferdinand's website had read that "three defeats on the trot would surely spell the end" for the manager.

But they have been forced to change tack, deleting any severe references to Moyes' future, reports the Daily Mail.

Under the feature "#5 things we learned in football this week", the magazine wrote: "It's been a tough old season for David Moyes, and the worry for him is that a 3-0 home loss to Liverpool might not yet represent its nadir.

'Not only does his side need to overturn a two-goal midweek deficit against Olympiacos to avoid a Champions League exit, but they then welcome Man City to Old Trafford a week on Tuesday. It could be a long week."

They also decided to change the headline. It had read: 'Time is running out for Moyes' but is now: 'There's no let up due for Moyes'
