Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton says manager David Moyes will have the players primed for their Champions League clash at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton says manager David Moyes will have the players primed for their Champions League clash at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Moyes's men did well in the first outing this season by putting four goals past Bayer Leverkusen en route to a 4-2 win, and Sir Bobby is confident the boss will lead United forward in Europe.

"David has, of course, sampled European football with Everton before, but he will learn a lot from being in the Champions League and he'll learn very quickly," he told manutd.com. "We're very fortunate that he's our manager, no doubt about that.

"Continuity was a big factor in David's appointment. Whenever you change manager, there will, of course, be one or two little differences, but not a lot if you handle it right and we've done that."
