Sam Allardyce believes “there is a panic on” at Manchester United following the Red Devils’ recent drop in form.
Manchester United only have five points from their opening five fixtures under Louis van Gaal this season after the Van Gaal was appointed in the summer to replace David Moyes.
Moyes was relieved of his duties back in April after the Reds lost to Everton at Goodison Park and Sam Allardyce believes that United failed to give Moyes the support he needed during his reign at Old Trafford.
The West Ham manager told The Sun: “There was a complacency by United in not going out and delivering the signings David felt he needed.”
“Now there’s a panic on. He will obviously look at what he might have done better but he should have got the players he wanted and he tells me he didn’t get any of them.
“It was difficult enough taking over from Alex Ferguson but if, when you take over, you don’t get what you want, it’s so much harder.
“It was a great shame because he’d done everything right at Everton and Sir Alex saw the fact he wanted to build at United like he had done at Everton.
“I’m not so sure anybody would have been successful in that season – history tells you that.”
The Hammers travel to play Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.
