Manchester United manager David Moyes is confident of turning around this poor start to the campaign and has maintained that the results will arrive.
The start of this new era under David Moyes hasn’t gone according to plans. While the fixture list hasn’t been kind on them, the team’s performance has also come under scrutiny. But although a lot of fans and critics have already labelled this as a crisis, the former Everton manager is confident that things will turn around for the club.
“I have been in [difficult] situations very similar to this at my old clubs Everton and Preston. You get on and you do the right things. I haven’t changed what I have done. I will continue to do that. The results will come. I have no doubt about that.” – The Manchester United manager said.
Despite their current predicament, for a club like Manchester United, Champions League remains a goal they will set out to achieve, like they have done in every previous seasons under Sir Alex and David Moyes believes that goal hasn’t changed this season as they prepare to face Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine.
“I said to win the Champions League you need to have a certain amount of world-class players. That is something we will try and do. Of course we will try and win the Champions League. It is part of the job at Manchester United and I will do everything possible to try and make that happen.” – Moyes added.
Moyes accepts the fact that facing criticism is part of his job and understands that a big club like Manchester United will always be the center of talking points and media gossips. But he also stated that, these things are part of what it takes to manage the ‘greatest club’ in the world.
“It is always the thing at Manchester United – everyone is interested in them. It is a talking point for everybody throughout the world. That is why it is, for me, the greatest club. It is a great honour to be the manager. Even our arrival here in Donetsk has been greeted with a lot of supporters at the airport. It is a great thing.” – he said.
Despite their poor domestic form, United have started their Champions League campaign on a bright note. They would look to maintain that momentum in this tournament with a positive result at Ukraine, which will also go a long way in settling down the fans and restoring belief in the squad after their shocking defeat to West Brom.
