David Moyes has insisted that his future as Manchester United manager has not changed following the defeat to Liverpool at the weekend.
Despite United’s season going from bad to worse, Moyes feels he has the full support of the Glazers and is not worried about losing a ‘great job’.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, he said: “My future has not changed one bit. I’ve got a great job. I know exactly the direction I want to go in.
“It’s not been the season we hoped we would have at this present time but I have ideas I want to put in place when the time is right but the most important thing right now is to get the Olympiacos game played and hopefully get through that competition. If we can it will be a massive lift for us.
“We know we’re in a poor position at 2-0 down but we have a lot of belief and we have to show it in the game.”
Moyes’ approach to the media has been scrutinised to the nth degree because of his constant use of either ‘try, hopefully or we’ll give it our best shot’. All season, he just hasn’t sounded like a Manchester United manager and even when the chips are down after the Liverpool defeat, his meek approach hasn’t changed much to the frustration of fans.
“The biggest assurance is that they [Glazers] let me get on with my job,” he continued.
“We never discuss it or talk about the future. We’re making big plans for years going forward and that’s why there is a 6 year contract. This club does not work on a short term vision, it works on a long term vision.”
Moyes also said that he still has regular contact with Sir Alex Ferguson and that he still remains very supportive of Moyes. If results continue to spiral downwards, that may change very quickly.
