"I am taking away the great experience of my first trip with Manchester United in general and what the football club means around the world.”

The victory means Manchester United have won three of five games of their Far East tour and Moyes added he had been pleased with the efforts of all the squad.

"I have also had a chance to get to know the players and try to settle into my new environment and for the players to get to know me as well," he added.

"They have been working with a great manager for a long time a lot of them, so it is going to take time.

"But I have really enjoyed working with them. They have been incredibly professional.

"I can see why they are champions because of the way they conduct themselves and go about their business. I have been very impressed."
