Moyes coy on potential Man United rule breach

David Moyes refused to be drawn into Manchester United potential rule breach when the Old Trafford boss named a weakened side against Leicester City mid-week

They later lost to Liverpool 4-2 at Old Trafford after Manchester United fans attempted to blockade the Liverpool team coach.

The manager told reporters at today’s pre-match press conference that he had no complaints saying  Manchester United can do whatever they want, “Ole can do whatever he wants with his team.”

Moyes did add that he thought that reporters should be asking the Premier League those questions rather than himself.

Manchester United made 10 changes mid-week when they faced fourth-place Leciester City and there are accusations they breached rule L19 by not fielding their strongest team which gave the Foxes an unfair advantage.

The Premier League are unlikely to sanction the top six club and have been reluctant to enforce this rule in the past.

Leciester City are now third on 66 points some seven  points above the Hammers.

  1. If you have a law of this nature then it should not matter whether you are Man U, Man C or any other team in the Premier league. The fact is that Solskjaer’s actions have affected the positioning of the teams in the top positions and not only affects positions and possible CL qualification but the prize money awarded at the end of the season. If the likes of Man u do not get sanctioned, why have the law in the first place?

    • Well, of course you’re right. However, we have lost 3 and drawn 1 of our last 5 games. We can’t rely on other teams when we had it in our own hands to secure a CL spot. And if we had been in their situation, we would have done the same, except that our squad is so thin that we wouldn’t have managed to find 10 players to bring into the side, sadly

  2. Nothing will come of this because its manure . The big teams can do as they like because rhe premier league bow down to there every demand . This has been happening for years , how do u think the same teams keep getting into europe each year Back handers and corruption . Also you look at penalties awarded to rhe big teams every season way more given than to the rest just another helpful shove un the rgt direction when needed . seen games were lfc were defo gna lose until refs awarded them 3 penalties when 2 nil down and made sure they get the 3 points . premier is corrupt and always has been .

  3. The premier league insists clubs name their 25 man squad at the start of the season this means that any of the players can used in any match regardless of the wishes of other clubs. Utd did not contravene any rule when they played Leister. Most of the players would walk into most of the other premier league teams.

  4. Hang on , i am a Manc but hate United and City…but if these players are in the match day squad,its up to manager to pick his team,,from his squad,, Good old Ole looks the fool nobody else both games lost,i hope they give Him and his backroom staff a long contract cos they all are hopeless
