Man Utd boss Moyes: The criticism has really hurt

Manchester United boss David Moyes admits he's been questioning himself during this season's dismal campaign. Moyes is bracing himself for more criticism if United lose at home to neighbours Manchester City in tonight's crunch derby showdown.

He admits he has taken more blows than he expected after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson last summer and that he is disappointed with himself.

The under-fire United boss said: "They've definitely hurt. They've hurt more because I joined Manchester United with big expectations myself - that I'm coming to a winning football club.

"I've got a winning mentality and that's what I wanted to do, so I'm disappointed with myself and I'm disappointed that we've been unable to do that.

"But it's not for the want of trying.

"Look, it wouldn't be right to say that there are things you wouldn't maybe look at in a different way.

"I've looked back at many things and I think most of the things we've carried out we would continue to do so.

"I move on, but the first thing you always do is look at what you've done yourself and then move on and see if it's something I maybe could have done better.

"First of all you look back at yourself and see how well you could have done. But obviously we've got a team and a club that's played a part as well."
