Former Manchester United boss David Moyes says the club should stand by under-pressure manager Louis van Gaal.
Van Gaal's side have slipped out of the Premier League's top four and exited the Champions League during a run of eight games without a win.
"What Manchester United stand for is that they keep their managers, they've always supported their managers," Moyes told BT Sport's Clare Balding Show.
"They don't want to become a club which continuously changes their manager."
Moyes took over as United boss from Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer of 2013 but was dismissed after just 10 months in charge.
Van Gaal was appointed as Moyes' replacement at Old Trafford in May 2014.
"I hope they stick with Louis van Gaal, he deserves more time," said Moyes, who was sacked by Spanish club Real Sociedad in November.
"It's still a work in progress for him, he's made some signings and from my experience in Spain it will take time for players from abroad to settle in. So, I think they should stick with it."
