Man Utd's Moyes calls for Januzaj protection

Manchester United boss David Moyes wants extra protection for young gun Adnan Januzaj.

The 18-year old was again the subject of rough-house tactics, this time in the 3-0 win at Aston Villa, and Moyes has called for a little bit more care from the referees in order to prevent a serious injury from occurring.

"Just a bit," said Moyes, when asked if he felt Januzaj was being kicked.

"In every game, I don't know how many tackles there have been on him.

"That is why I am annoyed with fourth officials and referees. He is definitely not getting protected and before you know it the boy will get a sore one.

"It is terrible what they (the officials) are allowing to go on at the moment. They (opposition players) are queuing up to see who can kick him next.

"(Matthew) Lowton was booked but there were that many tackles on him from different players.

"It is a recurring theme and it's the referees' job to sort it out. You would hope they would recognise that.

"Adnan will just get up, walk away and get on with it. That is one of his biggest attributes."
