Wayne Rooney: Arrives in Far East for start of United's pre-season summer to

The Red Devils have arrived in Bangkok for their pre-season summer tour and Moyes is upbeat regarding Rooney's future at Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old made his Everton debut as a teenager under Moyes and the two were recently re-united when the Scot replaced Sir Alex Ferguson as manager.

Moyes said of Rooney: "The team here are telling me it is the best shape they have seen him in for five years.

"And I am taking that as a positive. The club have already stated Wayne is staying and is not for sale.

"I am going to get the best Wayne Rooney I possibly can."

United, who were greeted in Thailand by hundreds of fans, are playing five matches in the Far East and Australia with Saturday's opener against Singha All Stars being a sell-out.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
