New Man U boss Moyes' name 'sounds similar' to Thai slang for pubic hair

London, July 2 (ANI): New Manchester United boss David Moyes may get a rude shock when he arrives in Thailand along with his side for a tour as his name reportedly sounds like a Thai slang for pubic hair.

The Scot, who arrived at United's training ground on Monday to officially start work as manager following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, is due to lead the Red Devils for the first time on July 13 against a Singha All Star XI in Bangkok, The Sun reports.

However, the report added, Moyes may face some ridicule from the crowd when he is introduced to local fans, as his names sounds similar to 'Moi'- a slang for pubic hair in Thailand.

Admitting that both the words sound similar, a source said that however, they are spelt differently, and joked that as 'Moi' is a funny and dirty slang for pubic hair, no fans would be chanting Moyes' name when he arrives.

Moyes, who was gifted with an United mousemat as a welcome present, has brought in an entirely new coaching team, all from his former club Everton, following Ferguson's departure after 27 years in charge. (ANI)
