With growing uncertainty over David Moyes and his ability to manage Manchester United, Darren Fletcher has spoken in support of the manager. The United midfielder has dismissed any presence of unrest between the players and the coach. The Scottish International has stated that the players are in full support of David Moyes despite their poor form.
Speaking to Manchester Evening News, Darren Fletcher said, “I’ve not seen that at all, to be perfectly honest. I’ve seen a group of players who are trying to take on board new ideas and trying to support the new manager.”
“Yes, it’s a little bit different, it always is when a new manager comes in — they are always different and bring their own style.
“You can see the manager’s ideas and it’s up to us players to start applying them on the pitch.”
The pressure on Moyes is also due to the reason that he is being compared to Sir Alex Ferguson. Each loss and poor performance of the team has been pinned on Moyes. This added pressure after every unfortunate result has only made the job harder for the boss.
Darren Fletcher is also of the belief that the manager can only do so much. It is also the responsibility of the players to make the manager’s strategies a success. He said, “You can see the manager’s ideas and it’s up to us players to start applying them on the pitch.”
Manchester United currently sit seventh in the league, but Fletcher insists that the squad is determined to return to their impressive form. The absence of Van Persie and Wayne Rooney has also weighed heavily on David Moyes’ tactical decisions. With Rooney now probably back in the line-up there is an aura of positivity as they face Swansea.
