Man United rounded up their USA tour in the ICC competition with 2-1 win over a much Rookie Real Madrid side, a result which must have finally made a disgruntled Mourinho a bit satisfied.
Alexis and Herrera were on target for United while Benzema’s consolation goal could not inspire Real Madrid to complete a comeback. Alexis particularly impressed, so also was United’s new Brazilian signing, Fred.
Mourinho who had made his frustration over lack of summer activity public was defensive of Alexis’ dismal display in 4-1 defeat to Liverpool forthnight ago and had blamed the other players he was being surrounded with.
The United’s manager has been a subject of media criticisms, particularly because of United’s boring style of play. Although he [Mourinho] is expecting to see two more signings before the transfer window closes, he is resigned to being satisfied even if the board could get him one.
However, the win doesn’t change anything in the face of the fans, but there are few positives to take away from the tour with Pereira particularly impressive and the prospect of having Fred pairing with Pogba in the midfield
