Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has said that manager David Moyes must be given time to get things right at Old Trafford, Sky Sports has reported.

The Dutchman has been injured for much of the season as Man Utd have struggled in the Premier League, where they lie sixth in the defence of their crown and looking unlikely to qualify for the Champions League next season, particularly after losing to Olympiakos in the first leg of their last 16 tie on Tuesday.

Despite Moyes’ lack of success so far in his first season in charge, van Persie backed the manager, saying: "He is new and needs time. He's working hard and so are we. It's easy to point at the manager but that's not who I am. We need to do it on the pitch."

However, he admits that this season has been very disappointing for himself and the club. Van Persie added: "We are lousy - in a lousy position in the league, out of the cups and this looks a difficult one also. We are very disappointed. It's a tough season.

"Sometimes we play good but not always. And we are not lucky. That's no excuse, though. We need to turn it around.’
