Manchester United manager David Moyes was in the stands for Cagliari-Juventus, but the hosts insist he “wasn’t there for our players.”
There was a great deal of speculation over who Moyes was there to view at the Stadio Sant’Elia on Sunday afternoon, a game Juve won 4-1.
It was suggested he had made the trip to Sardinia to scout Cagliari defender Davide Astori.
“No, Moyes was not here for that reason,” director of sport Nicola Salerno told calcionews24.
“He wasn’t there for one of our players, as we did not have any contact with Manchester United.”
Therefore Moyes was watching a Juventus player, most likely midfielder Claudio Marchisio, who scored a long-range goal.
Another option would be Mirko Vucinic, but the forward was on the bench throughout.
