MANCHESTER United manager David Moyes said the teams dismal form is the sort of thing that happens to him all the time.
Moyes told friends, family and ‘anyone who would listen’ that something would go wrong ‘sooner rather than later’.
He said: “My friends were all really nice and told me not to worry. ‘This team has just won the league’ they would say, ‘itll be brilliant’.
“But I kept saying, ‘no, no, no, something will go wrong, something always goes wrong’.
“It’s so typical of me. Whenever I get something new, like a telly or a car or one of those coffee machines with the little pods, it stops working within a month.
“Sometimes it just breaks all by itself and sometimes its because I may have accidentally knocked it into the sink.
“I dont know which scenario were looking at here, but from my point of view, it has come as absolutely no surprise whatsoever.”
He added: “When I got the job my wife said to me, youll break it within a month. She said it like it was a joke.
“But then there was an awkward silence and we just stared at each other for about 10 seconds.”
