Ex-Man Utd Boss Bemoans Defensive Mistakes

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes has bemoaned Real Sociedad’s mistakes in their huge 4-0 loss to Villareal at the weekend.

Moyes had led the Spanish side to two undefeated games in La Liga after taking charge of the club, but that record fell away against the Yellow Submarine of the Spanish league.

The Basque side had not even conceded under Moyes prior to the mauling from Villareal.

Moyes has become something of a figure of fun back in England after his incredibly unsuccessful spell at Old Trafford.

He led the Red Devils to seventh in the Premier League, hugely missing out on his targets in the league and in other competitions after replacing Alex Ferguson as his chosen successor.

Replacement Louis van Gaal has also struggled at times, losing 4-0 to MK Dons in the League Cup.

Moyes focused on his team’s display after the game, and admitted that the result could have been far worse.

He said: “It could have been more, we could have lost more goals. We made some terrible mistakes, defensively bad mistakes, especially with the third and fourth goals.

“I don’t think the first goal was a free-kick, I think it was the wrong decision to give the free-kick, but the best team won.

“In the first 20 minutes of the game we had some opportunities, but not enough tonight. We knew we were coming to a difficult ground and we wanted to be hard to beat, and for 50-60 minutes we were, but in the end [it was] not good enough.”
