Phil Neville admits that Manchester United have “failed” in their first season under David Moyes.

The Red Devils are currently seventh in the Premier League heading into the final five games of Moyes’ first campaign in charge at Old Trafford after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson last summer.

And former United defender Neville, who is a member of Moyes’ backroom team, insists that the team are not hiding away from the fact that they have underperformed.

“We have not fulfilled any levels of expectations this season,” Neville told BBC Sport.

“We have failed on the football pitch and that doesn’t sit kindly with anyone. We are not hiding away from the fact that we have underperformed.

“It’s been difficult watching other teams above us do well and to even look at a league table.

“I find it difficult to watch Match of the Day on Saturday night. I find it almost impossible because we’ve suffered this season.”
