Moyes targets trophies at Manchester United

David Moyes wants to win trophies at Manchester United but is not focussing only on the Premier League title, Sky Sports has reported.

United are the current league champions but Moyes values the other competitions in which United will compete – the Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup – just as highly, claiming that a club of United’s stature has to be in the mix for any and all trophies that are available.

You have to do well in all competitions – not just the Premier League,” Moyes said, adding: “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.

The Scot added that he took that philosophy at his two previous jobs, Preston North End and Everton, but now has the resources to make his stance a reality. “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 confirmed.

Moyes spent 11 years at Everton but was unable to win a trophy, coming closest in 2009 when he took the Toffees to the FA Cup final, beating United on penalties in the semi-final but losing 2-1 to Chelsea in the final game. His only trophy as a manager is the old Second Division title, won with Preston in 1999/00.
