The Price of Failure: Manchester United Sacks Manager

Listen in pop-out player

Manchester United has sacked its manager, David Moyes, following a season of abysmal performances that has knocked its standing on and off the pitch. For the first time in 19 years, the club did not qualify for the Champions League, prompting Mr Moyes's dismissal. We hear from fans, commentators and analysts about how the club - which was firmly among the elite of sporting brands - has found itself scratching its head over where it all went wrong.

Also, as Saudi Arabia prepares to take the title of world's tallest building, we find out why corporations and countries tirelessly compete over reaching the sky. Joining us live on the programme are guests David Kuo of the Motley Fool, Singapore and Alison Van Diggelen of Fresh Dialogues, from Silicon Valley.
