Capital One Cup: Manchester United boss David Moyes slams referee after Sunderland defeat

David Moyes was disappointed with the performance of referee Andre Marriner in the Capital One Cup defeat to Sunderland.

Manchester United manager David Moyes launched a scathing attack on referee Andre Marriner after seeing his side suffer a 2-1 defeat to Sunderland in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final.

Moyes is also adamant Ferguson is a help rather than a hindrance. Moyes' predecessor was watching from the stands alongside Sir Bobby Charlton and Bryan Robson but the Scot is adamant that the trio are a great help. Asked if their presence was an added pressure, he said: "Not at all. "Alex is a great sounding-board for me. He is there to help, so is Sir Bobby. He is terrific. Bryan Robson is at the training ground regularly, I speak to him regularly. "I find the three of them terrific."
