David Moyes addressed the media on Friday afternoon and admitted that the club is under no pressure to bring in new signings before the end of the transfer window.
It was the first time that Moyes has taken a press conference at Carrington, and he was more than happy to be sat in the hot seat.
Friday’s press conference was a television conference with the only networks there from Sky and MUTV.
Moyes was asked straight away regarding new faces coming into the club, in which he responded with:
“There is a need to do it, but there is no pressure to do it.
“We’ve been talking about it since I took the job on 1 July. I have an idea of where I’d like to strengthen and what we need to do. But we won’t do it because people like you tell us we should be signing players. We’ll do it because we think it’s the right thing to do. If the right players are available then great, but, if not, the first thing we’ll do is encourage our own young players in the squad to do as well as they did last year.
“There is a possibility [we won’t sign anybody] but the plan is we bring in one or two if we can. I think there is [value out there] but we have only targeted certain players and don’t have a big, big list. There are only certain quality players we want to bring to the club.”
The manager also responded to another Wayne Rooney question, stating:
“We’ve told you, haven’t we?”
“I hardly need to repeat it again. It doesn’t need to be said.”
