Sir Alex Ferguson has warned his successor David Moyes that the biggest challenge he faces when he takes charge at Old Trafford on July 1 will be "the enormity of Manchester United."

This is, after all, a club who, for the last quarter of a century, has only ever had one manager, and one of the most successful in the game at that.

Over the last two decades, the production line at the self-styled Theatre of Dreams has churned out trophy after trophy under the Ferguson era—38 to be precise—with United becoming one of the most recognised—and well supported—global brands in sport.

In May 2012, it was estimated that 10 percent of the world population are Manchester United fans, as if to further illustrate Ferguson's point.

And that's why David Moyes, once manager of humble Preston North End, is now one of the most talked-about coaches in football.

When the new Premier League season gets underway come August, the world's spotlight will be pointing squarely on the shoulders of the ex-Everton chief, as the footballing universe waits to see if he can replace the irreplaceable.

With Ferguson taking a place on the club's board, it may not be too surprising if he whispers the occasional word of advice or two into his fellow Scotsman's ear, and Moyes would be wise to take heed.

Here, we take a look at five things David Moyes must learn from Sir Alex Ferguson.
