Evra, 32, has won five Premier League titles since joining United in 2006, but is also enduring the leaner times of this season under Moyes.

The French international was in the United side beaten 2-0 at Olympiakos in Tuesday's Champions League last 16 first-leg, which was United's 11th defeat of a difficult campaign.

Evra told RMC it was no surprise the squad had struggled after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson last summer.

"There was a big change, it had to be digested. Nobody likes change. The team played under Alex Ferguson for more than eight years," he said.

"We're behind the new manager, we're going to do all we can to qualify for the next Champions League. Whether I win trophies or we're bottom of the table, my love for the club will not change."
