David Moyes celebrated his best day as Manchester United manager - but insisted there would be better occasions than Wednesday night's amazing 5-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen.

The remarkable scoreline represented United's biggest away win in Europe since a 6-1 demolition of Borussia Dortmund in 1964.

Only once have they won by a greater margin on their travels, when a Busby Babes outfit containing Bill Foulkes, who died earlier this week, defeated Shamrock Rovers 6-0.

It was the first time an English side had won by such a massive scoreline in Germany since the Champions League was launched in 1992.

Yet Moyes believes life can get better.

"It was one of my best days as Manchester United manager but the best days are still to come," he said.

"We won well and played well, with some outstanding performances.

"Bayer Leverkusen have a great record here so to come here and win 5-0 puts it into perspective as well."
