MANCHESTER, England (AP) - A plane carrying a banner calling for Manchester United manager David Moyes‘ departure is set to fly over Old Trafford at the start of Saturday’s Premier League match against Aston Villa.

Aerial advertising company Air Ads told the Manchester Evening News that it was asked earlier this week to create the banner.

Reading “Wrong one - Moyes Out,” the sign will be flown for 15 minutes at the start of the game, the company said.

Moyes, who was hand-picked by his predecessor Alex Ferguson, is overseeing a dismal first season in charge, with the Red Devils five points behind sixth-place Tottenham with seven games left.

Fans are losing patience and stewards had to protect “The Chosen One” banner in honor of Moyes after United’s loss to Manchester City midweek.
