New Real Sociedad manager David Moyes admitted that his side deserved to draw their clash against Deportivo La Coruna, but he hailed his team’s attitude.

The former Everton and Manchester United boss took charge of his first game on Saturday night when Sociedad took on the struggling La Liga side.

The Basque club, 81.00 to win the Spanish Cup, are also out of form but they did show some signs of potential as they battled to a 0-0 draw in Galicia.

Moyes, who is planning to add his own staff in recent weeks, admitted his side deserved to draw after falling away in the second half.

Although his team failed to register all three points, Moyes was quick to praise the attitude of the players.

He said: “I really enjoyed it. I thought we had done enough in the first half to be in the lead but we started the second half slowly and we gave away possession far too easily and too many times.

“I was disappointed with the second half. They were the better team in the second half but I thought we were the better team in the first.

“I don’t know the players well enough to give a comprehensive view on all of them yet. It will take some time but hopefully we can see some quick results and some improvement in the team over the coming months.

“Overall, I was really pleased with how the players went about it. I thought their attitude was very good tonight.

“I wasn’t happy with just a point, I wanted to win. But in the end maybe a draw was a fair result.”
