Recently sacked Manchester United manager David Moyes believed that during the weeks before his removal, he lost the support of Sir Alex Ferguson, Mirror reports.

With United’s performance in rapid decline, Moyes felt that Sir Alex was giving him less and less support to a point where the board had to question his capabilities as manager before deciding to let him go.

Having only completed ten months on his proposed six year deal, the former Everton boss was relieved of his services at the Red Devils helm despite Ferguson being the one to name him as his successor.

The now former Manchester United boss is said to also be unhappy with the way the club treated him as they waited for the news that Champions League football was out of reach before deciding to send him packing with the intentions of decreasing his compensation.

Moyes was given £4.5 million for missing out on the Champions League spot due to his low performance as United would have been forced to pay a lot more if he guided the team to a place in the top four.
