Villa Manager, Paul Lambert Defends Fellow Scot, David Moyes

Manchester United manager, David Moyes is definitely under pressure as results this season have been nothing short of poor for the high-profile of the team he coaches. He may have come under much ctiticism lately but one man is not happy about the overboard criticism of the Scot. Aston Villa manager, Paul Lambert who is also a Scot criticized the report that fans of United plan to fly an abusive banner over Old Trafford when his side meets the defending champions of the Premier League on Sunday.

He was speaking to reporters ahead of Villa’s trip to Old Trafford on Saturday.

“He is trying his best for Manchester United, the way I am for Aston Villa,”

“It comes with the territory. In the modern game, you are always one bad result away from being absolutely criticised.

“In years gone by you probably would have got a lot of time, but now the success people want is instant.

“But if you are talking about flying an aeroplane over the stadium with a message to say you are not wanted, it is a bit extreme.

“I think some of the criticism is way over the top, I really do.

“I think the magnitude of the job is huge. Only David can truly tell you about that, but from the outside looking in, it is a massive, massive job.

“It is not as if he is standing out there and thinking ‘things are not going well, but I still feel good’.

“He is human like everybody else and when you get that level of criticism it would not be nice.”

Manchester United is currently seventh on the Premier League log with less than 10 games to go.
