Moyes: 'I'll be more knowledgeable' after time at United

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has said it was "unfortunate" he was not given more time at Old Trafford, but that he had learned some "invaluable lessons" during his tenure at the club.

Moyes was sacked in April when he was just 10 months into a six-year contract.
