Cape Town - Angry Manchester United fans are reportedly planning to charter a plane to fly over Old Trafford on Saturday, demanding that manager David Moyes is sacked.

According to the ITV website, the plane is scheduled to fly over the ground for 10 minutes before kick-off and then for the first five minutes of the English Premiership game against Aston Villa on Saturday (kick-off 14:45 SA time).

According to the report, the plane will tow a banner which reads: 'Wrong One: Moyes Out.'

It is a reference to the 'Chosen One' banner hanging from the balcony of the top tier of the Stretford End.

United fans earlier this week verbally vented their anger at Moyes as well as former manager Alex Ferguson following United's 3-0 home loss to Manchester City. Ferguson was the driving force in Moyes being appointed as his successor.

The derby defeat made it six home defeats in the English Premiership for the first time since the 2001/02 season and left Moyes' charges 18 points behind leaders Chelsea, and 12 off a Champions League berth.
