The Scot has given his opinion on his time at Old Trafford.
After a disappointing time in charge since succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson last summer, David Moyes was eventually sacked as Manchester United manager on Tuesday.
The 50-year-old was just 10 months into a six-year contract at Old Trafford and leaves the club having guided them to their worst ever Premier League points tally – among a host of other unwanted records.
Player-coach Ryan Giggs has taking over as interim boss for the remaining four matches of the season, but the search for a permanent successor for Moyes has already begun.
The Scot has thanked many figures at the club and has picked out some good points from his time in charge of the English champions.
“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,” Moyes was quoted by ITV.
“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.
“Taking charge after such a long period of continuous stability and success at the club was inevitably going to be a significant challenge, but it was one which I relished and never had a second thought about taking on.
“The scale of the manager’s job at United is immense, but I have never stepped away from hard work and the same applies to my coaching staff.”
Louis van Gaal remains the favourite to succeed Moyes at United, although other front-runners include Carlo Ancelotti, Diego Simeone and Jurgen Klopp.
