David Moyes has admitted he will be looking to learn about the Champions League from Manchester United’s seasoned veterans, such as Ryan Giggs.

The new Red Devils manager led Everton to the final qualifying stages of the competition in 2005 before suffering an aggregate defeat by La Liga outfit Villarreal.

It means Moyes will have to get to grips with Europe’s premier club competition fast as United bid to win their fourth European Cup following their 2008 success.

And Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor has no qualms about going to the likes of Giggs and calling on the Welshman’s experience to help him through the first campaign.

“For me it will be a thrill,” said Moyes. “I’m going to have to learn a lot quickly and that’s where I’m looking to the likes of Ryan Giggs and a few players around me for the things which I need to be told about.

“It’s not all about the playing side of it.

“I’ve been in the Champions League, watched loads of games, managed in the Europa League. Everybody has to start somewhere.”
