David Moyes has insisted Manchester United's aims will always remain the same, regardless of who is in charge.
Moyes officially took over at United on July 1 after Alex Ferguson decided to call time on his 27-year spell at Old Trafford - a period that yielded a haul of 38 trophies.
And the former Everton manager has admitted that while taking over the reins from his fellow Scot is no easy task, he sees no reason to alter the club's targets.
"Our objectives for the season ahead are no different from what any Manchester United objectives would be - to win as many trophies as possible," he said ahead of his side's friendly against an A-League All Stars team in Sydney on Saturday.
"It's my first season as manager of Manchester United. I'm following probably the finest football manager that's ever lived. If I could even win a quarter of what he won I've done very well.
"The first thing I've got to do is settle in to the job, get to know everybody and find my own way around ... everyone at the club has been making that as easier as possible for me, the players especially have been terrific."
The 50-year-old went on to explain that he is expecting a difficult contest against Ange Postecoglou's inaugural A-League select XI, but added that his priority is making sure his squad are ready for the start of their Premier League title defence next month.
"(I'm) looking forward to the game," Moyes stated.
"Big game, big crowd - it should be a good night.
"I'm sure the Aussie players will be a bit more in free flow than we are. I think when you play Manchester United everybody wants to beat them.
"Every game for Manchester United is important ... but I would always say the most important game is the first game back against Swansea City. That's the real one we want to get ourselves ready for.
"We'll try to do everything we possibly can to show you how good a football team and a football club we are.
"If you're picking the best from the A-League we know it's going to be a tough test for us as well."
Moyes also admitted to looking forward to welcoming star striker Robin van Persie back into the fold after the Dutchman was given an extended period off due toihis international commitments.
"We'll use your fine facilities to try and pick up the training a bit and get prepared. Fortunately Robin will be joining us here in Sydney which will help us a lot," he said.
United veteran Ryan Giggs echoed his manager's comments and went on to explain how he is still playing at the highest level at the age of 39.
"To play against a quality team, we're looking forward to it," said the Welshman.
"I'm crazy aren't I? I'm enjoying it just as much as I did 20 years ago - it's as simple as that. Every year is a bonus for me."
