New Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted that he has stepped up to "another level" at Manchester United and says that he has found his new job "difficult at times".

Moyes was handpicked by Sir Alex Ferguson to take over at Old Trafford, when he decided to retire after over 26 glorious years at the club. After ending an impressive career at Everton, Moyes has said that his new job with the champions of England is a huge step up from his experiences at Everton.

"The transition from Everton to United has been difficult at times as I have hard decisions to make. Everton are a great club and I was proud to manage them," Moyes told Inside United.

"I can't deny Manchester United are on another level. Let's be honest, it would be a step up from just about any club in the world."

His first chance of winning silverware will be the Community Shield against Wigan on Sunday and Moyes wants to make it "the first trophy of many". However Moyes insisted that the trophy would not be his achievement if they won it.

Moyes continued: "Of course I will be trying to make the Community Shield the first trophy of many, but if we win it's really something that will have been earned by Sir Alex.

"It's because of his good work in the Premier League last season that we're in the Community Shield.

"I will do my best to finish off the job, but it's Sir Alex who will deserve a lot of the credit if we're successful at Wembley. I cannot wait to get the season started."

The start of the season will definitely not be easy for former Everton boss, with a difficult  first away trip to Swansea on August 17. Just over a week later Moyes will go head to head with Jose Mourinho, when Chelsea visit old Trafford on August 26. 

That is only part of Moyes' problems. He is currently losing the battle to sign Cesc Fabregas with Barcelona still insisting that he is not for sale. 

Manchester United fans are becoming increasingly worried as time is ticking away until the transfer window slams shut and Moyes still hasn't signed anyone.

Manchester City and Chelsea have already strengthened their squads and if Moyes doesn't make a move soon, he may have already lost the title.
