David Moyes hopes to surpass the achievements of Sir Alex Ferguson during his maiden campaign at Old Trafford by leading Manchester United to glory in every competition next season.

Manchester United's treble in 1998-99 - when they won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League - was the most iconic success of Ferguson's illustrious reign, and Moyes now has his sights set on a quadruple.

Moyes arrives at Old Trafford having won only one trophy in his managerial career - the Division Two title with Preston 13 years ago - but is bullish about his prospects following his appointment at Manchester United.

"You have to do well in all competitions — not just the Premier League," Moyes told The Sun.

"When you are at Manchester United my thinking is you have to go for everything, you attempt to win everything.

"Maybe you miss out sometimes, but you have to try to win all the trophies.

"I’ve done it everywhere else I’ve been and I’ll certainly do it here because I have a bigger squad, quality players and a club with the tradition of being used to winning things."

Moyes officially began work as Manchester United boss last week having been hand-picked by Ferguson to replace him after the veteran Scot lowered the curtain on his career at the end of last season.

And the 50-year-old hopes that Ferguson's faith in him will immediately earn the respect of the charges he inherited from his compatriot.

Moyes added: "I’ve talked to the players and told them I hope they respect his decision to pick me."
