United reached three finals in four years between 2008 and 2011, with Moyes admitting he is under huge pressure to maintain the club's proud European record and tradition.
"For me it will be a thrill and I'm going to have to learn a lot quickly," said Moyes during a break from United's pre-season tour.
"That's where I'm looking to the likes of Ryan Giggs and a few other players around me for the things which I need to be told about.
"It's not all about the playing side of it. I've been in the Champions League [qualifiers], watched loads of games and managed in the Europa League - everybody has to start somewhere."
