Manchester United Balls: Moyes Is ‘Bold’ To Buy Chelsea’s Best Player
IT looks a lot like Juan Mata – Chelsea’s Player of the season for the past two seasons – is on his way to Manchester United for a club-record fee. Oliver Holt is a Manchester United fan writing for the Daily Mirror. He reaches the kind of audience most fans can only dream of. He says that if Moyes flops at United “No one will remember 11 years of worthy over-achievement at Everton”. Everton fans might.
Failure for Moyes and “he knows that people will come to him, deep into his old age, and ask him about Manchester United, and he will look back in anger.”
Or he might just get another job in football and prove to be a success.
And on it goes. Holt then writes that buying Mata is ”a bold move by Moyes“.
He’s bold is that Moyes, buying a top player for a top price. If only Roberto Matinez, his replacement at Everton, were so bold and blessed with such foresight (surely had a fortune to panic buy a player Chelsea no longer want and can ask a huge fee for? – ed).
