Juan Mata is confident Manchester United will have a successful future under David Moyes, but insists everyone must stick together.
The Red Devils have slipped from champions to seventh in the Premier League table under new boss David Moyes as the transition from the 26-year tenure of Sir Alex Ferguson continues at the club.
Mata says he knew what he was getting into when he became the club’s record transfer with his switch from Chelsea in January, and Moyes must be given time.
The Spanish ace told the Daily Mirror: "We have to be together. Now is not the time to blame anyone. Now is not the time to look for guilty people.
"Now is the time to stick together – with the manager, with his staff, the players and with the people on the board of the club. We need to carry on, to stay with the manager. We need to believe in him, because as players we know we have to improve.
"It’s not just the manager, it’s not just the tactics. It’s all of us. It’s not the time to blame one person. We are all together in this.
"Some of my friends told me if this situation was happening in another club in Spain it would be different, but the club and the players are behind the manager.
"We need to be strong as a team, as a dressing-room and keep working hard. We need to improve, we know it, but we need to do it together."
