Man Utd legend Neville hits out at sacking culture

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has hit out at the Premier League's sacking culture.

David Moyes lost his job at United after just ten months in the job.

Neville said: "It's something I don't like about the modern game, the fact managers get sacked every 12 months. It doesn't matter whether it's my club, which is Manchester United, or any other club. And I'll continue to defend that position because my full belief there's a lack of decency in the way football managers get dealt with.

"They're so much in the firing line. I accept it's a pressurised job and they get well paid for it but there's a way of decency of dealing with people. Football managers now just get tossed around, chucked about, disregarded, rubbished - decent men, good men seem to get thrown away. That's not just David Moyes that's all through football. They're always the scapegoats."
