Business was mixed with pleasure on Friday as Manchester United held an open training session in front of 20,000 Australian fans just hours after visiting one of Sydney’s most picturesque locations, Manly beach.

Taking time out from a week-long training camp, David Moyes led the Reds away from the team hotel and down to the coastline ahead of Saturday’s clash with the A-League All Stars, taking in the impressive views and posing for photographs along the way.

And following an eagerly awaited press conference in front of the world’s media alongside Michael Carrick, the boss then took charge of training at the Allianz Stadium - where tens of thousands of supporters flocked to catch a glimpse of the champions up close.

Afterwards, Carrick took to his personal Twitter account to thank the fans for turning up in their droves: “20 thousand fans at training tonight, 85k at game tomorrow, still amazes me the support we have. Thank you, hope we put on a show.”

Thankfully, official club photographers John and Matt Peters were on hand to document the day and we’ve compiled the best of their work in our gallery, which can viewed by clicking the main image.
