Manchester: A plane trailing a banner calling for the dismissal of beleaguered Manchester United manager David Moyes flew over Old Trafford during the club's game against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The stunt, funded by a group of disgruntled United fans, is the biggest sign of open supporter dissent that Moyes has faced since succeeding Alex Ferguson last year.

Shortly after kick-off in the Premier League game on a sunny afternoon in Manchester, a small white plane was seen to fly over the stadium towing a banner that read, 'WRONG ONE - MOYES OUT' in giant red letters.

The protest is a response to a pro-Moyes banner, branding him 'THE CHOSEN ONE', that has been displayed by supporters in Old Trafford's Stretford End since the beginning of the season.
