thumbnail Hello,

The Scot says he will compete on all four trophy fronts during his first season in charge at Old Trafford, before admitting he hopes his inherited squad agree with his appointment

New Manchester United manager David Moyes has insisted he will challenge on all fronts during his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

Having wrestled the Premier League title off city rivals Manchester City last season, United will start their campaign on August 11 against Wigan in the Community Shield before embarking of their three-pronged domestic run and the Champions League.

United last won the FA Cup in 2004 and Capital One Cup in 2010 and, despite failing to win silverware during 11 years in charge at Everton, Moyes is gunning for a historic quadruple.

400/1 Man Utd are 400/1 with William Hill to win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup & Capital One Cup
"You have to do well in all competitions - not just the Premier League," he told The Sun.

"When you are at Manchester United my thinking is you have to go for everything, you attempt to win everything.

"Maybe you miss out sometimes, but you have to try to win all the trophies.

"I’ve done it everywhere else I’ve been and I’ll certainly do it here because I have a bigger squad, quality players and a club with the tradition of being used to winning things."

Moyes officially took over from the retired Sir Alex Ferguson on July 1 to become the club's first new manager in 27 years.

The Scot was handed a six-year deal when he agreed his departure from Goodison Park, and hinted that such confidence in him from the Old Trafford hierarchy should relay back to the squad.

He added: "I’ve talked to the players and told them I hope they respect his decision to pick me."
