Man Utd boss Moyes admits seeking Sir Alex advice ahead of Champions League opener

Manchester United boss David Moyes admits he's sought advice from Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of this week's Champions League kickoff.

Moyes will make his bow in Europe's premier club competition when Bayer Leverkusen visit Old Trafford on Tuesday. United's group also includes Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Sociedad.

He revealed: "After the draw, I phoned Sir Alex to talk about it and he said he thinks it's one of the hardest draws United have ever had in the Champions League.

"If that's coming from him, then it must be tough."
