Moyes: Man Utd used to be a club with great traditions

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes has claimed the club has abandoned tradition in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson's departure.

Moyes, who replaced his compatriot at the Old Trafford helm in May 2013, has since been succeeded by Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, while United have invested heavily in the transfer market in a bid to rekindle Ferguson's trophy-laden reign.

The Sunderland manager said:

Manchester United was a club with great traditions that they tended to pick British managers. That tradition has now gone.

They are a football club who had traditions with the way they spent - they didn't try to compete with all the others clubs, they tried to do what they thought was the right thing to do and spend in the right way.

I could say that's gone, so I think there have been a few changes at United, but that's the way they have chosen to go.
