Moyes ponders United challenge

David Moyes is aware of the task he faces after taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager, but refused to comment on speculation linking Wayne Rooney with a move to Chelsea.

Moyes faced the media ahead of his side's pre-season friendly with the A-League All-Stars on Saturday.

But he was silent on the question of whether Rooney would be leaving Old Trafford for west London over the summer and instead chose to focus on the daunting challenge of following in Ferguson's footsteps.

"Anybody managing Manchester United would have a challenge, even Sir Alex," said Moyes.

"But for somebody following Sir Alex, that's the hardest thing to do. What he did will never be repeated.

"For anybody to do 25 years and for the trophies and the championships he has won, it would be incredible for anybody else to achieve that.

"It's a big job and one I am really looking forward to. I have been overwhelmed already.

"We dropped into Thailand on the way to Sydney and everywhere you go, if you are involved with Manchester United, everybody wants to meet the players and everybody wants to be involved.

"It's just a fantastic football club."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
