David Moyes admitted it was a pleasant relief to leave Wales with his first three points in the bag, but insisted there is still much room for improvement.
When asked if it was the perfect start to his managerial reign at Old Trafford, Moyes told the media:
It is because you always want to win your games and as manager of Manchester United your job is to win games.
Swansea had a lot of the ball and they passed it very well and are very well managed under Michael Laudrup, but we limited them to a few opportunities.
They were quality goals. We could have played better at times but I am more than happy with winning 4-1.
It is one game in the season and it is just the start for me. There is a long way to go but there's no big celebration.
We've done a good job because this will be a really hard place for teams to come and play, so to come here and win was good.
Both Robin van Persie's and Danny Welbeck's goals were of a high standard and Welbeck completed the scoring with an excellent chip into Swansea's net, but it was the England internationals first from close range that most pleased Moyes.
Moyes went onto say:
I like center-forwards to score tap-ins inside the six-yard box and if you are going to get a lot of goals you are going to have to get a few of them, so it is a good start for Danny.
Wayne Rooney has been one of the main talking points this summer, with speculation over his future at Manchester United. Moyes continues to insist that the England international is not for sale and gave Rooney half an hour against Swansea.
He got 65 minutes in the game against Scotland the other day and I felt he could do a job if he came on.
He's not ready yet physically because he's not done enough training, but he came on and made a great run for Robin's goal and played in Danny for his goal, so it will be good for Wayne to get those minutes
I think people know good players and Wayne is a good player. Everyone wants those players in the team and we are delighted to have Wayne playing.
