Former Manchester United coach David Moyes admitted that he had banned chips at Old Trafford, as he felt some players were overweight. Moyes, who is currently the coach of Real Sociedad of Spain, said, "I did ban chips. It was because a couple of players were overweight and he didn’t think chips were good for their diet."
Earlier, United’s former defender Rio Ferdinand said, "It was a pre-match ritual to have low-fat chips the night before a game. We loved our chips but Moyes told us that we couldn’t have chips any more."
Manchester United appointed Louis van Gaal as their new manager following the sacking of David Moyes.
