Manchester: David Moyes spoke out on Wednesday for the first time since his sacking as Manchester United manager, saying he understood fans' frustration after his ill-fated 10-month spell in charge at Old Trafford.
"During this period of transition, performances and results have not been what Manchester United and its fans are used to or expect, and I both understand and share their frustration," the 50-year-old Scot said in a statement.

"I have always believed that a manager never stops learning during his career, and I know I will take invaluable experience from my time as United's manager.
"I remain proud to have led the team to the quarter-finals of this year's Champions League and I remain grateful to Sir Alex Ferguson for believing in my ability and giving me the chance to manage Manchester United."
