Manchester United boss David Moyes has welcomed their Champions League draw.

The Reds have been drawn in Group A of the competition alongside FC Shakhtar Donetsk, Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Real Sociedad, a selection of teams the boss is reasonably happy with – though he is wary of the threat posed by the Spaniards, who upset the odds to finish fourth in La Liga last term.

"It was okay,” Moyes told MUTV. “I think the last one coming out was difficult, Sociedad from Spain. Generally, we could have got a tougher job like Celtic - they have got a really difficult one.

“I enjoyed watching the draw, being part of that Champions League and I look forward to the games when they come about. The travelling to Donetsk is obviously a long one and it's a difficult game but I think the travel is not bad in comparison and hopefully that will help us in that regard.”
