Manchester United defender Patrice Evra insists that the team are behind David Moyes, despite a succession of poor results.

The Red Devils have endured a woeful 2013/14 campaign, with a number of disappointing performances having eroded their chances of retaining their Premier League crown.

United may also miss out on Champions League qualification for next season, with Liverpool a whopping 11 points clear in fourth spot.

Rumours of Robin van Persie’s unrest at Old Trafford have been circulating this week, which has contributed to suspicion that Moyes may be living on borrowed time as patience among the club’s hierarchy dwindles with each defeat.

But Evra – senior member of the squad – says that the players are behind the Scot in a period of great change:

“There was a big change, it must be digested – nobody likes change,” he is quoted by The Metro.

“The team played for over 28 years with Alex Ferguson.

“It is behind the new manager, we will do everything to qualify for the next Champions League.”

United won’t be in action this weekend due to the fixture alterations caused by the Capital One Cup final, and could find themselves 14 points off of Champions League qualification by Saturday night.
