Football: Moyes gets first taste of Champions League proper in tough group
MANCHESTER (AP) - David Moyes' experience in the Champions League amounts to two qualifying matches back in 2005, when he was manager of Everton.
He lost both games.
The Scot's pedigree in Europe is therefore under scrutiny as he makes his return to the competition eight years later at the helm of Manchester United. And he is unlikely to be given an easy ride in the group stage after United was pitted with Bayer Leverkusen, Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Sociedad.
Moyes called predecessor Alex Ferguson after last month's draw and was handed a grim assessment by a man who won Europe's top prize twice - in 1999 and 2008 - in his near-27 years at Old Trafford.
