Moyes questioned United's tough start this season.
"I find it hard to believe that's the way the balls came out of the bag, that's for sure," the Scot said in an interview with BBC Sport yesterday.
Former United junior Savage thinks the outburst was ill-advised.
"What David should have done is look at the last five games United have. It's quite an easy run-in. I have seen Stoke's run-in, they are very, very difficult but you don't hear Mark Hughes moaning," the Welshman said.
"Maybe the pressure is getting to him a little bit."
