The Reds were afforded a warm welcome by their Australian fans on arrival in Sydney on Sunday lunchtime.

After signing autographs and posing for photos with supporters at the airport, the squad got settled into their team base across the water from the Sydney Opera House.

David Moyes and Ryan Giggs addressed a press conference at the Museum of Contemporary Art and posed for a photo, along with Michael Carrick and Rio Ferdinand, in front of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

The Reds will use the week in the Australian city to get some solid training sessions under their belt ahead of Saturday's game against the A-League All Stars at the ANZ Stadium.
