Moyes lays into United players after derby defeat

Manchester United manager David Moyes admitted he heavily criticised his players after they were thrashed 4-1 in the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium yesterday.

City led 2-0 at the break through goals from Sergio Aguero and Yaya Touré, with Aguero and Samir Nasri doubling the lead after the interval before a late consolation Wayne Rooney free-kick

“I told the players the way I would have told players at any other club if I don’t think they’re doing it,” the Scot said. “I don’t think I’ve suffered a defeat like this with Everton in my time. We’ll make sure we react. Every manager has bad results. I’m no different.” page 52-53
