Moyes: United another level
Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted to having found it "difficult at times" after taking over at Old Trafford.
Moyes has accepted the challenge of succeeding the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, with United having turned to another Scot in their efforts to make a seamless transition from one coach to the next.
They appointed Moyes on the back of an impressive job done at Everton, with over a decade of loyal service at Goodison Park seeing him turn fortunes around on the blue half of Merseyside.
Moyes is, however, prepared to admit that his experiences with the Toffees are nothing compared to what he has taken on at the Theatre of Dreams.
He told Inside United: "The transition from Everton to United has been difficult at times as I have hard decisions to make. Everton are a great club and I was proud to manage them.
"I can't deny Manchester United are on another level. Let's be honest, it would be a step up from just about any club in the world."
Moyes' first task as United boss is to try and land the first piece of silverware of the English season, with the Red Devils set to face FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.
On the pursuit of major honours, Moyes added: "Of course I will be trying to make the Community Shield the first trophy of many, but if we win it's really something that will have been earned by Sir Alex. It's because of his good work in the Premier League last season that we're in the Community Shield.
"I will do my best to finish off the job, but it's Sir Alex who will deserve a lot of the credit if we're successful at Wembley. I cannot wait to get the season started.
"I know it won't always be easy, but I just hope we can all work together. My goal is to be successful and have a winning team. I hope that over the years we can have plenty of success."
