Anders Lindegaard says Man United stars faced difficulties adjusting to life after Ferguson's exit

Anders Lindegaard, former Manchester United goalkeeper, has described David Moyes arrival at Old Trafford as 'charging an iPhone with a Nokia charger'.

Moyes succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as the Red Devils boss in 2013 but was shown the exit doors barely ten months after he took the job.

Ferguson spent 27 years at the Manchester club and led them to series of triumphs - winning 38 titles during his reign.

The Danish shot-stopper has however opened up that the squad found it difficult adjusting to life under an entirely different manager.

He told the Evening Standard: “I didn’t feel it ageing. It felt more like we just couldn’t adjust to a new way of life.

It seemed like trying to charge an iPhone with a Nokia charger. It just slowly went flat.

Who was ever going to lift the club after the boss? Moyes and everyone with big influence on United have all been easy targets."

Lindegaard, who played second fiddle to David de Gea during the majority of his time with United, also said the players must take responsibility for the club’s current woes.

He added: "I refuse to be another one pointing at individuals.

"Every time the team has had a single bad result I’ve heard suggestions for new managers, getting rid of half the team and signing new players.

"I imagine it isn’t easy to work under those circumstances. I’ll point at myself and everyone else involved with United.

"Both on a professional and an emotional level. We were all to blame. None of us could accept changes to our beloved United.

"All of us thought everything should just stay the same and we’d carry on succeeding. It was an illusion." earlier reported that Manchester United have confirmed the departure of Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera following their refusal to renew his contract.

The 29-year-old made just 25 appearances scoring two goals and assisting three others in all competitions in the out-gone campaign owing to series of injury.

Other players that exited the club are Antonio Valencia, Regan Poole, Zak Dearnley, Tom Sang, Callum Whelan, and Matty Willock.

James Wilson, Matthew Olosunde, Tyrell Warren, DJ Buffonge, Callum Gribbin, Josh and Baars Bohui, and James Thompson have also been told to look for another club while they free up space for incoming stars. ( -> We have updated to serve you better
