A group of Manchester United supporters have raised £840 to fund an aeroplane to fly over Old Trafford with an anti-David Moyes message.

The supporters have put the money together to hire the plane with the order: ‘Wrong One – Moyes Out’ to go overhead during Saturday’s Barclays Premier League home match against Aston Villa.

It is a direct challenge to the Stretford End Flags group, who say they will not take down the ‘Chosen One’ banner inside Old Trafford.

The Republik of Mancunia website, who first reported the plans, said: ‘The message is a response to the Stretford End Flags banner which reads “The Chosen One”.

Following United’s 3-0 defeat against City on Tuesday, stewards were sent to protect the banner at full time, after there were concerns that fans would want to remove it.’

‘As yet, there have been no public protests within the ground, home or away, but it is expected that will change at the weekend when United face Villa.’
