Madrid: David Moyes wants "excitement, speed and commitment" from his players when the former Manchester United and Everton manager makes his home debut as Real Sociedad coach in Friday`s La Liga game against Elche.
Moyes took charge of the team for the first time in an uninspiring 0-0 draw at promoted Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday and the Elche match is a chance for struggling Sociedad to give their fans something to cheer about and begin the task of climbing up the table from 16th place.
"I`m looking forward to a big crowd and a good atmosphere and I hope the supporters get right behind the team," Moyes told a news conference previewing the clash at Sociedad`s Anoeta stadium in San Sebastian.
"What I really want (from the team)? Exciting, fast, speed in their play, committed and showing how determined they are to play well for the club," added the Scot.
"Can I get all this in the first game at home? I don`t know but that is what I want.
"I want a good team performance but more important I want three points."
Moyes reiterated that he will need time to make his mark on the Basque club, the 51-year-old`s first coaching job since his failed stint at United ended in April.
"We can`t make big changes just now but I do think the players are really, really focused, really interested in their work and wanting to get better," he said.
"It gives me a lot of hope and a lot of faith that the players are trying very hard to improve in every training session.
"I am still assessing the group. I have seen one game so it`s going to take time."
