David Moyes on Monday officially started his job as manager of Manchester United, taking over from Alex Ferguson, who resigned in May after 26-years in the post.

The 50-year-old former Everton boss drove into the United's Carrington training ground in a sponsored Chevrolet at just after 8:00 am, stopping briefly to wait for security barriers to be raised before heading into work.

In a sign of the changes underway at Old Trafford, within minutes of Moyes' arrival the club confirmed another regional partnership - with leading Thai telecommunications company True Corporation Plc.

True will be an associate match sponsor for United's opening tour match against Singha All Stars in Bangkok on July 13 - Moyes' first in charge.

Club officials also confirmed the appointments of Steve Round as assistant manager, Chris Woods as goalkeeping coach and Jimmy Lumsden as coach..
