David Moyes and his Manchester United side put their on-field woes aside during a trip to Dubai this week.

But the United stars seem to be taking their minds off things after meeting a legend of the beautiful game on their travels.

Moyes’ side are preparing for their last-16 tie with Olympiakos in the Champions League next week.
