Despite the demoralising defeat to Liverpool over the weekend and the fact that Manchester United are almost destined to be without European football next season, David Moyes has claimed that he has the full support of the board at the club.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League game against Olympiakos at Old Trafford the United boss noted:
“My future has not changed one bit,”
“I have a great job.
“I have a six-year contract. This club does not work on short-term vision, it works on a long-term vision.”
United need to overturn a 2-0 first leg loss from the away leg to the Greek champions and with confidence at an all time low, the feeling around many fans is that tomorrow may be yet another disappointment.
Moyes tried to reassure the fans:
“It’s not something that happens a lot [overturning a two nil deficit], but it’s something we believe we have to make happen,”
“I’ve got belief in the players.”
He added: “The fans have seen some defeats they would not have expected and they have stuck with the team.
“They have seen great success and will see great success in the future. This club is the biggest in the world and it will rise again.”
Going through to the last eight of the Champions League may just save Moyes’ United career, although for many fans the former Everton boss should be shown the door in the Summer.
