Football: Januzaj's rough-house reception irks Moyes
BIRMINGHAM (AFP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes has called for referees to offer better protection to winger Adnan Januzaj despite seeing his side convincingly win 3-0 at Aston Villa.
Two goals in the space of three first-half minutes from Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley's 52nd-minute effort ensured the hosts were well beaten on Sunday, December 15, 2013, as United won a first league game in five attempts.
But Moyes was unhappy with the number of tackles made on the Belgian-born youngster and wants referees to take action.
"I think he's been kicked in every game," Moyes said. "I don't know how many tackles he's had in the last two or three games.
