Man Utd boss Moyes: March has been tough month

Manchester United boss David Moyes admits it's been a tough month.

Last night's thumping by Manchester City came just a fortnight after a similar result against Liverpool.

"March has been a really difficult month," Moyes told MUTV. "I thought it would be a tough year for us but I hoped we'd be more competitive and closer to the top than we are."

The main positive for the manager was, as per previous defeats, the vociferous support his side received from the stands.

"Thanks everybody for the support," he said. "It was great tonight - we had a lot of support for the team during the game.

"I genuinely feel that most people understand that this [United's situation on the field] is something that's going to take a bit of time to alter.

"It can't be something that we're going to do from one Saturday to the next. It's not going to change dramatically in the short time between now and the end of the season."
