Former Manchester United manager David Moyes tore into the Old Trafford hierarchy as he said farewell to the players, claims Neil Custis of The Sun (subscription required).
The former Everton boss slammed the club after news of his sacking leaked out through national newspapers on Monday before he found out himself.
Custis cites a United source as saying:
He certainly did not hold back when he began talking about the way he was fired and how he found out.
He does not realise nobody at the club wanted the information out before he had been told and the board were surprised when the news broke on Monday.
The decision had been made, but they wanted to do things the right way.
Custis also reports a number of outbursts made by Moyes during his tenure, notably a claim that United players were trying to get him the sack after the Champions League defeat at Olympiakos.
The League Managers' Association branded United "unprofessional" in their conduct over the sacking of Moyes, reports Jeremy Cross of the Daily Star, but the article also notes that United denied the accusations.
United owners, the Glazer family, will fly into Manchester this week to arrange plans for a new manager, reports David McDonnell of the Daily Mirror.
Meanwhile, interim manager Ryan Giggs used his first team talk to declare to the players that it is time to play like United again, reports Mark Ogden of the Daily Telegraph.
Louis van Gaal will consider appointing Roy Keane as his assistant manager if he takes over at Old Trafford, reports Ian Ladyman of the Daily Mail.
