Football: Man United manager Moyes wants more players, warns of more set-backs
LONDON (REUTERS) - Manchester United football manager David Moyes has warned fans the English Premier League champions need top level reinforcement and last Sunday's 4-1 humiliation by Manchester City is unlikely to be a one-off.
"There will be days like we had on Sunday and there might be more of them because we are in a period where there will be transition," the Scot told newspapers ahead of Wednesday's Capital One Cup tie at home to Liverpool.
"Where we've got work to do is in bringing players in - not for the squad but to go right into the team," added the manager, in his first season at Old Trafford after replacing Alex Ferguson.
"We needed one or two who might have just gone in (to the team). But that will happen. Yes, it does mean I may have to take a few more blows. Maybe even more than that. Maybe all season I have to take a few blows."
