Moyes had made his way to the dug-out before the players left the tunnel for the kick-off and received warm applause from the stands.
"I just wanted everybody to know I'm the manager of the club," he stated. "They know where I am. I stand by the side of the pitch. Ever since I’ve been at Manchester United, I’ve only had support. I don’t where people are trying to change this from but I believe that all Manchester United supporters are behind me and they all understand the situation we are in. The players are incredibly focused, that was an important thing as I wanted the focus to be right.
"My be-all and end-all was to make sure we won the game. Nothing else. I thought the fans inside the ground got behind the club and the team. I'm really looking forward to the game against Bayern Munich. It's been a difficult season for us but we can go a long way to doing an awful lot better if we can get a result on Tuesday."
