Vialli: If Moyes managed in Italy he would have been sacked three times

Former Chelsea boss Gianluca Vialli claims Manchester United manager David Moyes would have been "sacked three times" if he was managing in Serie A. "In Italy, managers are judged simply by results," he told BBC Radio 4. "Italian managers don't enjoy themselves at all."

"David Moyes, in Italy, would have been sacked three times now," said Vialli, referring to United, who have won only four of their last 12 games in all competitions and are out of the FA Cup and League Cup.

"In the Premier League you get the feeling they give you a bit longer to sort out problems.

"They are more understanding and, most importantly, owners of football clubs don't think they know more than managers.

"They let managers run it for a while and don't just sack you after the first two or three defeats."
