Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has said that Moyes needs time to settle at the club, according to Sky Sports.

The reigning Premier League champions have struggled under Moyes this season after the Scotsman took over in the summer from Sir Alex Ferguson. The Red Devils currently sit 6th in the Premier League and have been eliminated from both domestic cups.

The best chance that United have of playing in the Champions League next season is to win it this year but their hopes took a knock after a 2-0 defeat to Olympiakos on Tuesday.

Moyes took the majority of the blame for the defeat but the Dutch striker backed his boss saying: "He is new and needs time. He's working hard and so are we. It's easy to point at the manager but that's not who I am. We need to do it on the pitch."

Fans have been calling for Moyes to be sacked, and with bookmakers slashing his odds yesterday.

Van Persie added that United's form this season has not been up to their usual standard.

"We are lousy. We are very disappointed. It's a tough season. Sometimes we play good but not always. That's no excuse, though," he said.

The Dutchman was frustrated about his performance on Tuesday, blaming team mates for playing for being "in the area where I want to play", forcing him to drop deeper.

The striker was guilty of missing an opportunity to pull a goal back in the last minute, pulling his shot high over the bar.
