Scot has endured a torrid debut campaign in the north west.
Under-pressure Manchester United head coach David Moyes still retains the full support of the club’s owners the Glazer family, despite the Premier League champions’ shock loss in the Uefa Champions League earlier this week, according to reports in the Guardian.

The Red Devils were surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Greek champions Olympiacos in Athens in the first leg of their Uefa Champions League round-of-16 clash on Tuesday night, the first time ever in the Premier League giants’ history that they had lost to Greek opposition in Europe.
And now if the Scot wants to retain any hope whatsoever of winning a trophy in his debut campaign in charge at the Theatre of Dreams, his side are going to need to overturn that 2-0 deficit when the two teams meet again in the decisive return leg in the north west in three weeks’ time.
However, given that the last time the club managed to achieve such a feat was exactly 30 years ago when a Bryan Robson-inspired United beat La Liga giants FC Barcelona 3-0 at home in the second leg of their Uefa Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-final, the outlook looks bleak for Moyes and Co.
