Moyes: Impossible to match Ferguson Man Utd record

David Moyes feels it will be "impossible" to match the success of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United

Moyes gave his first media conference as United manager.

He said: "It is impossible to match Sir Alex and do it for 26 years, at this level.

"I don't think there will be another manager who will do it for that long but I hope he is sitting in the directors' box because he has been so good and I have already called him two or three times for some advice.

"Sir Alex will never go away. His name is on the stand and there is a statue of him but he's not there to pressure me.

"There were some brilliant managers who could have quite easily taken this role but the biggest confidence boost I got was that Sir Alex said to me 'You're the next Manchester United manager'."
