Man Utd returns to Manchester after jarring US outing

28

Manchester United closed their pre-season tour of America on a jarring note by losing its fifth outing in what was a pedestrian showing from José Mourinho’s outfit.
The manager has serially stressed results do not matter and United’s time here is all about fitness and team gelling. Thus he will return home content with the five matches that have certainly kick-started that process.
Mourinho was however unhappy at his rearguard. “It was an open game, we didn’t defend well,” he said. “I’m not happy. But in the second half lots of changes for them and for us, but both teams play for the result we tried to equalise, they tried to keep the ball, possession and defend well so in second half the match was positive.”
United returned in Manchester early on Thursday morning and touched down with four victories under their belt as thoughts turn to the UEFA Super Cup meeting with Real Madrid in Macedonia on 8 August.
Mourinho’s side faces Vålerenga and Sampdoria in their final warm-ups before the trip to Skopje.
So after those four previous wins the mission to achieve a clean sweep required what would be United’s most impressive victory of the trip.
