Manchester United manager David Moyes has written an open letter to the club’s season ticket holders in which he admits he did not foresee United’s difficult season.

“While I knew that this job would be a challenge when I took it on, the difficult season we have experienced was not something that I envisaged, which I am sure is the case as well for you supporters – and my players, staff and I am desperate to compensate for that,” Moyes said in the letter.

Moyes said that the backing the fans had given his side had been “incredible” throughout the  season, and that “away from home the travelling fans have remained the best in the country, while at Old Trafford your unwavering faith has been noticeable and hugely welcomed.”

Moyes said that he believed that everything the club had been through would make it “a better, stronger team and club in the future.

"Over the years you have seen great winning sides here and, in time, I have absolutely no doubt that we will see great winning sides here again.”

He said that United needed to transform “Old Trafford back into the fortress it has long been renowned as, and we will do everything in our power to get the positive performances and results to do that”.
