Moyes was so unaware that he was about to be fired that he worked on FOUR deals for new players on the day it was made known he was departing.
He is thus angry and furious with the executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and other club officials, who did not keep him informed of his fate.
Moyes spoke to allies in the game in the afternoon and early evening of Monday and was confident he still had Woodward’s support.
The now-departed manager thought he was safe and was pressing for an answer from Luke Shaw’s camp about a £27million move from Southampton to the Old Trafford giants.
Moyes and his team had been at Southampton’s game against Aston Villa on Saturday and were working on persuading the young England left-back to be part of his summer overhaul.
