Moyes confident of Sociedad revival

Real Sociedad manager David Moyes is refusing to panic despite seeing his side pick up just two points from their opening four fixtures of the new La Liga campaign.

The 52-year-old's performance has come under intense scrutiny, with reports in the Spanish press suggesting the Scotsman could face the sack if his team suffers a defeat against Athletic Bilbao in the Basque derby on Sunday.

This after 10-man Sociedad lost 3-2 to Espanyol on Saturday evening, stretching their winless start to four games.

However, Moyes is refusing to buckle under the pressure, insisting his team will eventually start picking up the results they desire.

"I am very happy, I am here despite having other opportunities," said Moyes. "I like the city and the players are fantastic.

"I am very committed to the team. It has been a bad start to the season, but we will keep on preparing ourselves as we should.

"I have been a coach for a long time and I have been in this situation a lot of times before: you do not always win and you do not always get what you deserve.

"The similarity [with United] is that you want to win. I have to insist, again, that we are at the start of the league and that we want to get better. It is the same as we have done in every club, we do good work but sometimes things change when you least expect it.

"I do not have doubts about the squad: we have very good players, although our play has to be better in certain moments.

"We have not played very badly in any one of our four games. The problem is that in three of those we have not scored, and that is not our style. We are lacking a little bit of luck at certain moments."
