To say David Moyes has had a rough start to his tenure at Manchester United would be the understatement of the year. Moyes and United sit 6th in the Premier League. The last time United had finished lower than 3rd in the Premier League was… never.
It has been a year of struggles for Moyes most recently with 3-nil losses to City and Liverpool. But what does this mean for United? Do they sack “The Chosen One” and just rebuild with a new Manager at the helm? Is this the end of the road for DM? Not so fast. A colossal opportunity lies in Wednesday’s fixture with Bayern Munich in the Champions League Quarter Final. Bayern are touted as the world’s current #1, having already clinched the Bundesliga title. The Bundesliga champions are heavy favorites in what should be another ‘easy win.’ But if United pull off the upset, it would surely give Moyes another year of safety.
The giants of world football vs. the struggling 6th place underachieving United side. Moyes has been given a truly golden opportunity. They are expected to lose, but if United come out inspired to save their bosses job, the result may tilt in their favor. This game may define David Moyes career, for the good or for the bad.
