Man Utd players sniggered, sneered behind Moyes back

Manchester United's millionaire players have been accused of sniggering and sneering behind the back of manager David Moyes.

The Daily Mail says Moyes' reading material on the way back from their Champions League defeat to Olympiacos, 'Good to Great' by Jim Collins, brought ridicule from the players.

"We are the Premier League champions," said one source from that flight. "Why on earth did our manager need to read a book to learn how to manage us?"

In January when Moyes took his team to Dubai on a training break, he allowed them a night out.

Some players rewarded him by returning at 5am, waking other guests.

When Shinji Kagawa - never trusted by Moyes - arrived so late for the flight to Munich this month that he had to be fast-tracked through departures by United's security staff he did so with a fixed smile on his face hinting that he really did not care.

In recent weeks, three unused players sat in the stand at one game and began to place bets on just how long their beleaguered manager would survive.
