An Irishman who looks like David Moyes claims his life has been ruined by the Manchester United manager, who was sacked this week.

Damien Hughes tells his story in the Irish Sun—and it gets the front-page treatment.

He says he has received regular verbal abuse since United slumped under Moyes.

"I thought I was going to be lynched," Hughes is quoted on the front page as saying. "People are saying: 'Why are you letting us down?'"

Presumably Hughes will find a little bit of respite once the dust settles on Moyes' departure—at least until his next managerial appointment...
