David Moyes believes the Manchester United supporters could play a key role in turning his side’s fortunes around after cheering the Red Devils on to a battling 3-2 win against Stoke on Saturday.
Moyes has had a fairly average start to life in the Old Trafford hotseat and the fans frustrations appeared to coming to the fore when Man United were widely booed after twice going behind to the Potters.
However, they came back to take all three points thanks to a late Javier Hernandez goal which sealed his side’s first win in three home league games and sent the stadium into rapture.
This isn’t the first time the champions have been booed this term, with certain sections of the support thought to be growing tired of a number of players who they believe aren’t justifying their place in the starting line-up.
The Scottish manager knows just how important the Old Trafford faithful could be in lifting his team throughout the season and has praised their impact on the side during the closing stages of Saturday’s game against the Potters.
“I thought inside the ground with 15-20 minutes to go, the supporters were terrific, they drove the team on and played a big part in getting the result,” he told the club’s official site. “Of course they were a little disappointed. They wanted to see their team win, maybe more convincingly, but they’ve had a lot of games like that here in the past.
“It was very good, very exciting. I really enjoyed it and the three centre forwards we had on the pitch all scored a goal today and that was pleasing.”
