Despite awful football and a horrible result against Liverpool, Manchester United fans were in full voice on Sunday afternoon.
David Moyes has claimed he’s told the players it’s time they started paying us back for our fantastic support, starting tomorrow night against Olympiacos.
“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.”
