David Moyes has broken his silence on Mohammed Kudus and his decision not to start him.
Speaking to Daily Mail on Sunday after the Aston Villa defeat Moyes is quoted as saying.
“I am tempted to start Kudus in every game, but I have to be fair and say the team played quite well and, in most games, played well. Obviously, we have a balance and are trying to get that right as well. There have been times when our balance has been very good and got us some good results but now and again it can sometimes cause you problems as well.”
“Huge individual errors where things didn’t go our way,’ said Moyes when analysing his first loss against Villa in 13 years. “I still go back to first half, very close with not a lot in it at 1-0, we missed opportunities to score, chances to make opportunities to score and that was the bit that was bugging me.I think today I am not having my team losing by four goals. We might have new players making the team better, but I’m not having a team losing by four goals as soft as we did today,’ he said.
Strange words from the manager after picking the same team three times in a row and a defeat on Sunday.
