David Moyes says he is more driven than ever to succeed at Manchester United and is confident he can turn things around at Old Trafford.
After excellent performances against Olympiacos and West Ham, the Reds suffered a disappointing 3-0 derby defeat to Manchester City in midweek. With two more home clashes to follow against Aston Villa and in Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich, the manager feels he just needs time to get the Reds competing for league glory again.
"It's a long journey here and this is only the start of it," declared Moyes at Friday's press conference. "You work hard to get here in the first place but I’ve got to say I’m more driven to succeed than ever because I want the team to turn around and I want to change the position we’re in just now.
"I really do believe we can do that. We’ve got a great club, which gives you the chance to do that because of the people we can attract and the players we can attract to the club. But it’s just going to take a little bit of time to get it sorted."
Moyes believes the vast majority of fans are supportive and will continue to provide their backing inside the stadium.
"Everywhere I go, I get great support from Manchester United supporters," he stated. "I was really fortunate to be at a dinner last night for Darren Fletcher and the amount of supporters who were up, saying: 'Keep going, we understand exactly the situation the club and the team is in’.
"So they were really supportive and every time I’ve gone to Old Trafford, the crowd have been great. I’m seeing it differently to what a lot of people are seeing.
"But results are what really matter. The business is results-driven and I’m keen to get those results to move up the table. I’m repeating myself but it’s actually not what I’ve been witnessing [any negativity]. I’m witnessing great support: the people I bump into outside the ground, Manchester United supporters.
