Sarah Moyes (@Moyesy) from Polmont, Scotland, bears no relation to the now unemployed manager but has been inundated with tweets following the sacking.

Despite the mistaken identity, Sarah Moyes appears to have made light of the situation, even playing along to the idea that she is the daughter of the ex-United manager.

Meanwhile, other twitter uses from a far afield as India and New York have united (excuse the pun) with Sarah Moyes to discuss their experiences of mistaken identity in the footballing world.
