Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has claimed he doesn't fear for his job at Real Sociedad despite witnessing his own fans chanting him to "Go home" during the 2-0 defeat against Atletico Madrid on Sunday 18 October. The Scotsman, meanwhile, has played down reports in England linking him with a return to the Premier League to take charge of Aston Villa after claiming he is happy and likely to stay in La Liga.
Moyes took charge of the Spanish side in November 2014 following the sacking of Jagoba Arrasate, leading his side to a comfortable 12th place finish in La Liga to avoid the relegation. He broke club transfers records during the summer transfer window with big name additions, like former Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi, in an attempt to fight for a spot in Europe.
However, Real Sociedad are now battling against relegation after having secured just six points from the first eight games of the campaign. Following his fourth defeat of the campaign against Atletico Madrid, La Liga expert Guillem Balague reported that Anoeta fans themselves urged him to "Go home" as the club are sat in a disappointed 16th place.
But asked in the press conference whether he fears for his position, Moyes said: "Not at all. I am the best man for this job. I am not under pressure. You can't always keep changing your manager, and think that that is the answer to your problems."
Recent reports in England claimed he is eventually likely to return to the Premier League to replace under scrutiny Tim Sherwood at Villa Park. Moyes, however, admitted he had some contacts with English clubs in the summer but is likely to continue in La Liga.
"During the pre-season I had contact with clubs, which is normal, because they know my statistics, but my intention is to stay here at La Real, I'm not thinking about anything else," he admitted. "You saw the hard work and determination the players put in, how they fought. I'm very happy with that and I want to stay, there are no doubts in my mind."
