Man United Boss David Moyes Defends Lack Of Summer Signings

Moyes happy with current crop of players.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Manchester United manager David Moyes has defended his current crop of players, saying he doesn’t see the need to make any signings before the transfer window deadline.

Speaking to Sky Sports following his side’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, Moyes felt his side played very well at Anfield, despite many criticising the lack of investment in new midfielders this summer.

United have been linked with several big names, such as Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas, and are reportedly continuing their pursuit of Everton duo Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini, though Moyes says he is not concerned if he fails to bring anyone in.

“We will try and do it, but from what I saw of the players, I’m more than happy with the players I’ve got,” he said.

“I thought they played really well, probably the best we’ve played this season.”

Many neutrals feel United are lacking a partner for Michael Carrick in the middle of the park, while the ageing Ryan Giggs and off-form Ashley Young were criticised for their performances at Anfield.

After just one win in their opening three Premier League games, Moyes is already under pressure in his new role at United, having replaced the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer.

United won the Premier League last season, but will face increased competition this season from improved Chelsea and Tottenham sides, as well as Liverpool, who made it three wins out of three by beating United today.
