Struggling Manchester United manager David Moyes is not yet concerned for his future at the club despite the significant decline in the team's form this season.

The Red Devils lost their ninth game of the season against Liverpool on Sunday, equalling their record in the Premier League era. Their massive decline in form coincides with the arrival of Moyes, who replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer.

Although Manchester United offered Moyes a six-year contract, set-back after set-back is reportedly forcing officials at Old Trafford to seriously consider sacking the Scot just a year into that deal. A number of sources claim that Moyes had three games to save his career with the Premier League champions.

Speaking ahead of the Champions League tie against Olympiakos, in which they have to overcome a 2-0 deficit to qualify for the last eight, Moyes insists he is not on the verge at Manchester United, insisting the club have a long-term vision in place.

"My future has not changed one bit," said Moyes to reporters.

"I have a great job."I have a six-year contract. This club does not work on short-term vision, it works on a long-term vision."

Moyes revealed he is in frequent contact with Ferguson and says he remains "very supportive" despite the results.

The most disappointing aspect of the season is the fact that they look set to miss out on a top four place and must therefore win the Champions League to qualify for it.

Having won just six of the 14 league games at Old Trafford this season, a win three-goal swing against the Greek champions looks unlikely.

"It's not something that happens a lot, but it's something we believe we have to make happen," Moyes said. "I've got belief in the players."

He added: "The fans have seen some defeats they would not have expected and they have stuck with the team.

"They have seen great success and will see great success in the future. This club is the biggest in the world and it will rise again."
