BANGKOK – Manchester United lost David Moyes' first match as manager, 1-0 to a Thailand All-Star team in an exhibition game Saturday night.
Moyes took over this summer following the retirement of Alex Ferguson, who had been manager since 1986.
United was missing star forwards Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. Rooney is sidelined for a month with a hamstring injury and Van Persie is to join the team in Sydney before a July 20 friendly against A-League All-Stars.
Teeratep Winotha scored in the 49th minute off a pass from Dango Siaka on a hot night before a sellout crowd of 50,000.
