United morning news: ‘Three games to save Moyes’ and Rooney asks for fan support

A select round-up of news relating to Manchester United

The Sun reports that David Moyes has three matches to prove to the Manchester United hierarchy that he is the right man for the job.

If that is the case, his fate could be determined by results against Olympiakos in the Champions League followed by West Ham United and Manchester City in the Premier League.

United have to overturn a two-goal deficit to make it past the Greek champions – something they should be more than capable of doing at Old Trafford, while their away form has been impressive in recent weeks.

It is at Old Trafford in the league where they have particularly struggled, so it will be very interesting to see what happens when their “noisy neighbours” come to town.

In other news, ESPN reports quotes from Wayne Rooney in which he calls on the fans to support the side in the upcoming match against Olympiakos.

In response to the Liverpool defeat, the England striker said, “We need to move on as we have a big game on Wednesday.

“If the fans can repeat an atmosphere like Sunday, then we will have a good chance of going through.”
