Fans deserve reward

Manchester United manager David Moyes says the fans deserve to be rewarded with a stirring display against Olympiacos on Wednesday night.

The Old Trafford crowd remained behind the team throughout the disappointing 3-0 reverse to Liverpool at the weekend and will be key to any hopes of overturning a two-goal deficit against the Greek champions in the Champions League last 16 tie.

Although history may be against the Reds progressing in the competition after a first-leg loss in Athens, the boss is convinced success is just around the corner.

"The support inside Old Trafford has been phenomenal," said Moyes. "The players would tell you that was the first thing I mentioned to them after Liverpool. I told them we have to start giving something back and start performing. We need to work to make sure it's a night to remember. We'll leave nothing behind out there and we'll try to make sure that, somehow, we get ourselves through to the next round.

"I think the fans have seen some defeats this season they wouldn't have expected and they've stuck with the team throughout. They've seen great success at Manchester United and they'll see great success in the future. For me, it's the biggest club in the world. It might not feel it today but I can tell you it is. It will rise again and hopefully it's not too long."
