David Moyes starts job at Manchester United

London: 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 (GMT), 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.
