Thai welcome stuns Moyes

David Moyes’ first experience of fan fervour on a Manchester United pre-season tour will live long in his memory.

The Reds boss arrived in Bangkok with his team on Thursday and, though he was aware of just how passionate United fans are in Asia, he was still taken aback by the reception.

"The amount of people who were at the airport was incredible and the excitement when we arrived was like The Beatles – it was something else," Moyes told MUTV.

"There are fans in and outside the hotel and everywhere we go. It just shows the power of United. I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to it!"
