Writing to reach you: Manchester United manager David Moyes pens open letter to season ticket holders

Manchester United manager David Moyes has thanked the fans for their support in an open letter to season ticket holders.

United are 11 points off a Champions League qualification spot and are facing an uphill battle to reach the next stage of this years’ competition.

Moyes acknowledged the difficult season so far but praised the United support and says the club will come back stronger.

“While I knew that this job will be a challenge when I took it on, the difficult season we have experienced is not something that I envisaged,” Moyes wrote.

“The backing you have given the players and I throughout the season has been incredible.

“We have all stuck together through some tough times this season and I firmly believe that, in the long run, we will all come out the other end stronger for the experiences.

“Over the years you have seen great winning sides here and, in time, I have absolutely no doubt that we will see great winning sides here again.”

United take on West Brom at The Hawthorns on Saturday with pressure building on Moyes after United’s abject performance against Olympiakos last time out.

Perhaps a bad omen for Moyes is that United have lost their last four fixtures on March 8 and have won just one of their last eight on that date.

Much has been made of the weakness of the United side this season with Tom Cleverley coming under fire from fans after his selection for the England squad.

Moyes has again leapt to the defence of his midfielder.

“Tom Cleverley is a fantastic young player who is developing all the time,” Moyes told his Friday press conference.

“He does his best in training and never gives it less than 100%.

“From my point of view that is why he will be successful.”

A victory against West Brom will be crucial for United to boost their season ahead of a treacherous run of fixtures which sees them face Liverpool, Olympiakos and Manchester City in succession.

United won their last league game against Crystal Palace but haven’t put together back-to-back league wins since December.

West Brom beat United at Old Trafford earlier in the season and will be hoping to do the double over The Red Devils to help their chances of Premier League survival.
