Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis has slammed Manchester United's handling of David Moyes's sacking, claiming the club have "washed away" everything it once stood for.

Pulis, who has guided the Eagles to a second consecutive season in the Premier League for the first time in its history, believes Moyes deserved longer than the 10 months he was given in the Old Trafford hot seat.

Moyes was chosen to succeed Alex Ferguson, but a string of poor performances and rumblings of discontent from the dressing room, led to his dismissal on Tuesday following United's 2-0 defeat at Everton.

The defeat on Merseyside confirmed they would not be appearing in the Champions League for only the second time in the club's history.

Pulis said: "I am disappointed for David, he deserved longer, and the way it was handled was disappointing as well.

"For the past 26 years or more, since Sir Alex became manager, Manchester United have been a beacon of how to run a stable football club.

"But that has been washed away of the past couple of days in how they have handled this situation."
