Manchester United boss David Moyes says he's been leaning on Sir Alex Ferguson during their crisis-hit campaign.

Recent conversations with his predecessor Ferguson, and other leading members of the board have given the former Everton manager the feeling that he remains secure in his position.

"(Ferguson) has been incredibly supportive," Moyes said.

"I speak with him regularly and I see him at the games.

"I always have a few minutes with him. He is very supportive. He told me before I came in it was a difficult job but he is always here to help.

"Him, (director) David Gill, (vice-chairman) Ed (Woodward), all the board are very supportive.

"The biggest assurance is that they let me get on with the job, we never discuss it (Moyes' position).

"We talk about the future, we are making big plans for years going forward.

"That is why they gave me a six-year contract because this is not a club that works on a short-term vision, it works on a long-term vision."
