thumbnail Hello,

The Scot has brought three of his long-term allies with him as he arrives at Carrington to start work as Sir Alex Ferguson's replacement, as the club also announce a new sponsor

Manchester United have named Steve Round as the club's new assistant manger as David Moyes officially begins his Old Trafford reign.

Moyes arrived at Carrington - now officially renamed the AON Training Complex - at 08:00BST on Monday morning to start work as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor, and the Premier League champions have wasted little time in announcing his backroom staff.

As well as Round, who has worked with Moyes since 2008, Chris Woods has been named goalkeeping coach while Jimmy Lumsden has also been handed a role behind the scenes.

"I have worked with Steve, Chris and Jimmy for a number of years and I am delighted they have decided to join me at this great club," Moyes said.

"They bring great qualities in their respective fields and I know that, like me, they feel that this is a challenge to relish. I have great faith that together, we can build upon the success this Club has enjoyed over many years."

Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward, who has taken over from David Gill, added: "I believe with David and his new team in place, along with our current backroom staff, we can now start preparing for the new season ahead.

"This is an exciting and challenging time for the club and I have great belief that David and his team will have all the energy and attributes needed to help this club continue in its long-standing traditions."

United have also announced a sponsorship deal with Thai telecommunications company True, who will become the Red Devils' official mobile partner and MUTV broadcaster in Thailand.
