egtmedia59Manchester United football team’s embarrassing upset Saturday as highly paid squad of players slumped to a 1-0 defeat in a friendly against Thailand’s Singha All-Star XI.

Fans paid up to 4,000 baht ($128) to watch the triumphant host team beat the English Premier League champions at the Rajamangala National Stadium. The Thailand team comprised of the best players from the Thai Premier League. After a goal-less first half it was Thailand’s Teeratep, who broke the deadlock in the 49th minute beating defenders near the post.  image (1)

After arriving in Bangkok, the Manchester United team bus got stuck underneath a chandelier at the Four Seasons Hotel’s entrance and workers had to climb onto the roof of the bus to free it.

Manchester’s new manager David Moyes, who recently took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, on his retirement, fielded a team without Wayne Rooney who returned to the UK earlier that day, with a ham string injury, will hope for better from his players on the rest of the tour to Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Sweden.

They begin their Premier League title defence on August 17.
