Former Chelsea boss Gianluca Vialli has told BBC Radio that Manchester United manager Moyes would have been sacked 3 times if he was in Italy.
“David Moyes, in Italy, would have been sacked three times now.”
Vialli reckons the Pemier League are a lot more lenient towards managers, giving them more time than in Italy.
“In Italy, managers are judged simply by results, Italian managers don’t enjoy themselves at all.”
“They are more understanding (in the Premier League) 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.”
This comes after Moyes has put under extreme pressure by United fans following another defeat in a horrid season, where United lost to Olympiacos. There was even rumours that Moyes had been sacked following the defeat. Are United being too lenient to Moyes or should he be given time?
