Manchester United defender Alexander Buttner has dismissed talk of a ‘crisis’ at Old Trafford.
The result capped a thoroughly underwhelming start for new United chief David Moyes, who is already under immense pressure.
The Scot succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson over the summer and has endured a difficult time both on and off of the pitch.
A botched transfer window saw Moyes draft in just one significant signing – Marouane Fellaini – while his side’s third defeat of the league campaign leaves them with just seven points.
But, Buttner has leapt to the defence of his boss, insisting that there is no cause for panic at the club:
“We’re very disappointed to lose the game. It is very disappointing for everyone.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.
“Normally we have to win this game at home but no, I don’t think it is a crisis.
“We have lost games but we have to focus and fight in every game to win it.
“Of course the crowd want to see Manchester Untied winning – the players want that too.
“Our season starts now and we can win many games. You have to trust the players and everyone.
“I think we can do this as a team. We are going to win games, I am sure.”
United travel to rock-bottom Sunderland next weekend in desperate need of three points.
