The Reds have lifted the famous trophy on three occasions and it is the challenge of pitting yourself against the finest teams on the continent that has allowed the competition to evolve whilst retaining its lasting appeal as European football's elite competition.

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 added. "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."
