Under-fire manager David Moyes says he is more determined than ever to succeed, and is confident he can turn things around at Manchester United.
The Premier League champions are languishing in seventh and to rub salt in the wounds, have just tasted humiliating back-to-back 3-0 home defeats to arch-enemies Liverpool and Manchester City.
But the Scot is adamant that the future is bright. Speaking to reporters, Moyes declared: "It's a long journey here and this is only the start of it.
"You work hard to get here in the first place but I’ve got to say I’m more driven to succeed than ever because I want the team to turn around and I want to change the position we’re in just now.
"I really do believe we can do that. We’ve got a great club, which gives you the chance to do that because of the people we can attract and the players we can attract to the club. But it’s just going to take a little bit of time to get it sorted."
A disgruntled group of Red Devils fans have planned a protest for tomorrow's game against Aston Villa whereby a plane is set to fly over Old Trafford with a banner saying: 'Wrong One - Moyes Out.'
But Moyes insists that the vast majority of United fans continue to give him their full backing. He said: "Everywhere I go, I get great support from Manchester United supporters.
"I was really fortunate to be at a dinner last night for Darren Fletcher and the amount of supporters who were up, saying: 'Keep going, we understand exactly the situation the club and the team is in.'
"So they were really supportive and every time I’ve gone to Old Trafford, the crowd have been great. I’m seeing it differently to what a lot of people are seeing."
