David Moyes

Manchester United manager David Moyes has slammed the Premier League, accusing the organisation of a fixture conspiracy, reports The Telegraph.

The United boss has criticised the League after the Premier League champions were handed Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City to play in the Scot’s first five games as new Red Devils manager.

Moyes has said:

“The old manager told me those sort of things happened. I find it hard to believe that’s the way the balls came out of the bag. I think it’s the hardest start Manchester United have had for 20 years.”

Moyes has said that he was warned by his predecessor, Sir Alex Ferguson, that United would be handed an unfair hand when it came to fixtures, but Moyes hopes that the Premier League haven’t actioned this just because United won the title so comfortably last season.

A Premier League spokesman has said:

“We’ve assured him the process is random and above board. He has accepted those assurances.”

David Moyes isn’t the only Premier League manager to bash the board with Aston Villa boss, Paul Lambert also claiming that his club has been handed an unfair schedule.

Lambert has expressed his anger over the changing of Villa’s fixtures to accommodate Chelsea, who will play Bayern Munich pushing Villa v Chelsea to the Wednesday night.

The decision to change this fixture means Lambert will lead his side to three away games against Arsenal, Chelsea and then Liverpool.

Lambert said:

“We are talking here about big-club syndrome. When I complained I wasn’t convinced by the answer I got from the Premier League. I’d love to know if Villa have ever had a harder start than this. They are hard games against Arsenal and Liverpool but to put the Chelsea one in between was strange.”

Rooney

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney hasn’t ruled a move to Arsenal if Chelsea’s interest falls through, according to the Daily Mail.

United are refusing to sell the 27-year-old to a title rival and have already rejected an opening offer from the Blues.

But the England international would be willing to move to Arsenal instead if David Moyes rejects Jose Mourinho’s next offer.

The Gunner’s interest in Rooney dates back to March when the striker was controversially omitted from retired manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s starting XI to face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League encounter.

They’re even prepared to meet the former Everton man’s enormous wage demands – he earns 240,000-a-week – and Arsenal will break their wage structure and offer 200,000-a-week on a five-year contract.

Chelsea however remain the front runners in the race for Rooney’s signature and last week had an official bid of 23 million plus 2.5 million in additional clauses rejected by the English champions.

Mourinho’s star quality could be an attractive proposition for the forward, 28 later this year, though he also respects Arsene Wenger and has been told the Frenchman intends to build his team around him.

And that suits Rooney just fine, as he felt increasingly marginalised at Old Trafford last season.
