United Denies Moyes-Giggs Rift

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United on Tuesday moved to quash rumors that veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs and Coach David Moyes have fallen out after Giggs, the most decorated player in United history, was left out of the squad that lost 3-0 to Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday. In a statement quoted by the Sun, a club spokesman said: "The story of any problems between Ryan and the manager are completely false."

The widespread rumors of a fall-out came ahead of United’s crucial UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second-leg clash against Greek giant Olympiakos at Old Trafford on Wednesday, with the Red Devils trailing 2-0 after the first-leg. Now 18 points behind Premier League leader Chelsea, the UCL is United’s last realistic chance at a trophy this season. The storied club is also 12 points outside of fourth-place, the final UCL qualification slot in the Premier League standings.

Meanwhile, some reports claim that Moyes needs to prevail in the series against Olympiakos, as well as in United’s next two Premier League games, in order to stand a chance of saving his job. Speaking to United’s official Web site on Tuesday, the former Everton coach said: "The players are capable of turning [the season] around. We're all desperate to put things right and make sure we play better to give the supporters here something to shout about.”
