Moyes takes responsibility for Man Utd defeat

Manchester United manager David Moyes has accepted full responsibility after his side put in a below-par performance to lose 2-0 to Olympiakos in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie, writes the Manchester Evening News.

The Greek champions were the better side throughout and had already come close on two occasions before taking the lead on 38 minutes when Giannis Maniatis’ shot was flicked beyond a wrong-footed David De Gea.

Nine minutes after half time, Arsenal loanee Joel Campbell made it two with fine curling shot from 25 yards. Late on, Robin van Persie missed a wonderful chance to score a crucial away goal for the Premier League side, blazing over the crossbar when well placed.

Describing the performance as his team’s worst in Europe this season, Moyes said: “That’s the worst we have played in Europe that’s for sure. It was a really poor performance. We never really got going from the start and we didn’t deserve anything because of the way we played.

“We never really got to grips with things and, to a man, you could hardly pick anybody out. We just didn’t perform. I take responsibility. It is my team and I will always front it up. We didn’t play well. We have to play better. We can do and the one good thing is that there is still a second game to come. We will do everything we can possibly do to reverse the 2-0 defeat.”
