David Moyes blasts 'disrespectful' Manchester City

Table of Contents
Everton manager David Moyes has accused Manchester City of having no respect in their pursuit of defender Joleon Lescott.

The Citizens have long been linked with a move for the England international, and have had bids understood to be worth £15 million and £18 million turned down.

However, that does not appear to have deterred City, who still appear keen on adding Lescott to the ranks at Eastlands.

City boss Mark Hughes is expected to return with an improved £22 million offer for the 26-year-old, but Moyes is unhappy at the way their cash-rich Premier League rivals are going about their business.

The Scot told The Sunday Mirror: "It is about showing respect - and we are not being shown that.

"I'm sure if I was Mark Hughes with all the money he has I would try to buy the best players.

"But we'd try to go about it in a different fashion.

"I would think I would go about my business in the way I have always done."

He added: "I've always tried to contact the managers and show respect to them in terms of transfers, and no matter how much money I might have to spend, I would always want to keep that up.

"It goes back to the managers having a drink together after the game, to the fact managers will still phone each other up when they are looking for a player.

"That is part of the way it should be done."
