BBC Sport - David Moyes: Manchester United 'could not afford risk'

Keeping Moyes 'too great a risk'

Manchester United "could not afford" the financial risk associated with keeping David Moyes, former Liverpool managing director Christian Purslow has said.

Mr Purslow told the Today programme that David Moyes's poor performance in the transfer market was a deciding factor in the club's decision to remove him from his post.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Tuesday 22 April.
