Moyes thank fans,as United trash Aston Villa 4-1



A defiant David Moyes insisted he won’t hide from his critics after
some Manchester United fans paid for a plane to fly above Old
Trafford calling his sacking
Moyes thanked those inside the ground for their vociferous backing
during United’s 4-1 victory over Aston Villa and is convinced the
majority of United supporters are still behind him.
While the plane displayed a banner reading “Wrong One – Moyes
Out” in the opening minutes, Moyes had walked out before either
team on his way to the dugout and received a loud ovation from the
United public.
And he vowed to carry on making himself visible in troubled times,
explaining: “I just wanted everybody to know that I am the manager
of the club and you know where I am. I stand on the edge of the pitch
every week. That’s my job.”
The home fans responded to Ashley Westwood’s opening goal for
Villa with chants of “United” before Wayne Rooney, with two
goals, Juan Mata and Javier Hernandez scored in a comeback for
Moyes’ side.
And the manager added: “I have found the support inside Old
Trafford terrific and if ever there was a show of support for their
football club and for their team, it was today.”
Moyes said the plane protest had little impact on him, claiming: “I
was focused on the game. My be all and end all was to make sure we
as a team and a club won the game.”
Mata scored his first goal for United since his club record 37.1
million-pound move from Chelsea in January and Moyes praised the
He said: “He has deserved it. His play has been very good. I think he
has made a difference to the team. One of the reasons we bought him
because he has got a goalscoring record, he has always scored goals.
Wherever he plays for the team, he has made a difference.”
Meanwhile, striker Wayne Rooney was happy his side could register
a win for both manager Moyes and the club’s supporters.
Rooney told BT Sport: “Today was a big game for us after
midweek. We had to respond and it was difficult. We had a slow
start, going behind, but we came through it and got the win and
deserved it. It was a good win for us.
“We know the support the manager has got from the players and from
the fans and that’s what matters. The support he got from the fans
was incredible again today.”
United’s attention now turns to the Champions League meeting with
Bayern Munich at Old Trafford on Tuesday, a match Rooney is
looking forward to. He said: “It’s a massive game, the quarterfinals
of the Champions League against the champions. It’s going to be a
good game and hopefully we’ll get a good result.”
