Football: That's another trophy for Sir Alex, says Moyes
LONDON (REUTERS) - David Moyes was not claiming too much credit after collecting his first piece of silverware as Manchester United manager in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.
United beat Wigan Athletic 2-0 in the season curtain-raiser to give Moyes a successful start in his bid to fill the huge boots of Alex Ferguson who stood down in May after leading United to 38 trophies in 26 years at Old Trafford.
"I class that as another piece of silverware for Sir Alex,"Moyes told a news conference.
"I was in charge of the team today but it's a reward for winning the Premier League under Sir Alex last season and I won't take too much credit for it." Robin van Persie scored both United goals against Championship side Wigan who upset Manchester City in the FA Cup final last season to earn their place in the Community Shield.
