Manchester United manager David Moyes has the unequivocal backing of the board despite facing up to a disastrous first campaign in charge at Old Trafford, according to The Mirror.
Moyes has been beaten in 10 of his 31 Premier League games in charge of United, the latest of which was a deflating 3-0 defeat to local rivals Manchester City on Tuesday night.
United also lost at home by the same scoreline to bitter foes Liverpool just a week prior to being humbled by City, enough for many Red Devils fans to call for instant change as they face up to the worst Premier League campaign in the club's history.
Despite growing fan unrest United still believe Moyes is the man to take the team forward into next season, with the Mirror reporting that senior board members still believe that allowing Sir Alex Ferguson to handpick his successor was the right decision.
United will let Moyes spent an sizeable transfer budget this summer to transform an under-performing squad, rather than looking for a new coach with fresh ideas.
The Scot faces some tough decisions on how based to reverse an alarming slide in fortunes this season, which has United a staggering 18 points behind table toppers Chelsea heading into the business end of the campaign.
More pressingly United have to prepare for a gargantuan task in the Champions League, with defending champions Bayern Munich due at Old Trafford for the first leg of their quarter-final tie next Tuesday.
