Manchester United boss David Moyes has slammed the media for making something out of nothing regarding the presence of former manager Sir Alex Ferguson in the stands at Old Trafford.
Moyes has struggles since taking the reins at the Red devils where he finds his side out of the FA Cup and currently placed seventh in the English Premier League, but he insists both former players and Ferguson remain supportive.
“It tells you that people don't know me and don't know Sir Alex,” said.
“People are saying it because they have no idea about how it works.
“Sir Alex has been fantastic. He has been incredibly supportive and is only there to help me.
“I have a conversation with him when I need it and I tend to see him for a minute or two after the games.
“I have found him great and it has been the same with Sir Bobby Charlton and Bryan Robson.
“All the people around the club have been great as have all the former players, in the main.
“But there are a lot of people out there who are trying to twist the words or make out it is a problem. I have no problem with it at all.”
Manchester United are next in action Saturday at home to Swansea. They come into the game off the back of a 2-1 defeat to Sunderland in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semifinal.
Moyes, though, is confident his side will turn things around.
“I've been here before and done it before,” added Moyes.
“I just sense it's on the verge of turning, that we're about to get a bit better. You need a bit of good fortune to go for you, and it looks as if we're not getting enough of that at the moment.
“I can sense in the dressing room that there's an urge to fight our current position.
“It's part of football management. It's never going to be an easy ride.
“To be the manager of Manchester United is a big challenge, whether it's on the back of wins or defeats.”
