David Moyes hasn't had the best of starts to his Manchester United managerial career and finds his team sulking down in mid table, even below his former club Everton.
But one man who thinks Moyes can turn things around is strike superstar Robin van Persie.
The Dutch forward did admit yesterday that the reigning champions have dropped too many points this season, but is convinced that manager Moyes is the right man to take United master forward and produce positive results.
“He will get that time and everyone is convinced that we will change things sooner than later.” Van Persie said.
He added: “We lost many points this season, too many in our opinion, because if you want to go for all the trophies, you have to play better and get more wins in, but we are doing everything we can to change that.
“The manager is our leading man in that case and he is trying his best and I think he will turn things around.”
United now face the possibility of finishing outside the top four and thus missing out on the prospect of playing in the UEFA Champions League.
The Red Devils' chances of regaining their title is long gone. Now they must focus on finishing in the top four if they wish to keep their star players, including Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Nemanja Vidic.
The club have struggled to maintain the level of football produced by their former manager Sir Alex Ferguson and as a result their team value has gone down by a large margin.
Moyes will need to spend heavily this transfer market given that he has been provided the funds.
He has been spotted in Italy scouting the likes of Arturo Vidal and former Man United midfielder Paul Pogba in the last few weeks, but whether he signs anyone or waits for the next transfer window to open is yet to be seen.
