Angry Manchester United fans turn on Alex Ferguson after derby defeat

Manchester United fans have focused their anger on Sir Alex Ferguson, who appointed David Moyes as his successor, after United’s 3-0 home derby loss to Manchester City, Mirror reports.

The angry supporters stormed towards the Old Trafford directors’ box before stewards held them off from damaging the ‘Chose One’ banner.

The Red Devils have now lost a record 10th Premier League game this season, bringing United to an all new low and fans have chosen their former manager as their new scapegoat.

Edin Dzeko scored only after 43 seconds in the clash, before then adding a second himself, and Yaya Toure put the icing on the cake with a last minute strike.

Scenes of mutiny ensued as supporters engulfed Old Trafford to vent their fury.

And some of them voiced their concerns directly at Ferguson – sitting in the director’s box – for personally choosing David Moyes to take over the United helm.

In the end, six stewards guarded the ‘Chosen One’ banner as fans in the Stretford End were trying to tear it down.

Moyes however shouldered the blame for United’s derby humiliation and said that the Sky Blues are setting the standard for his side to aspire to.

“I think we’ve played a very good side, playing at the sort of level we’re aspiring to,” said Moyes.

“We need to come up a couple of levels ourselves because at the moment we are not there.

“I take responsibility for the team and always will do. I have to be the one who picks the players.

“I still think there are a lot of good players in this squad, but some of them could play better.

“I thought it would be a tough year for us, but I hoped it would be much more competitive and we’d be closer to the top of the league than we are.”
