Manchester United Arrive In Bangkok (PICTURES/VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Manchester United received the usual hysterical welcome from supporters as they touched down in Asia for the first leg of their pre-season tour.

This is the eighth time United have travelled to the Far East in the last eight years, as they continue to cater for their fanatical fanbase in that corner of the globe.

Moyes has named a 19-man party for games in the Thai capital, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong before United end their tour in Sweden.
