Manchester United boss David Moyes has outshone predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson in one tradition with his players.

Moyes is showing he can give the great manager a run for his money in the trivia stakes.

One United source told the Daily Star Sunday: "The new manager might still be learning his way at United but he's no pushover when it comes to general knowledge.

"He enjoys banter with the rest of the lads and these quiz nights have always been seen as a nice way to unwind before the team goes to bed - although it can get pretty rowdy at times.

"Moyesie knows his stuff and the lads admit they are going to have to brush up on their reading a little bit more."
