JUST IN – Manchester United 1-4 Borussia Dortmund: Mourinho suffers first defeat as Red Devils boss
In a match just concluded few minutes ago, Man Utd Lost 1-4 to Dortmund.
Jose Mourinho suffered his first defeat as Manchester United manager as his side slipped to a 4-1 defeat against a classy Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup on Friday.
Dortmund, who were competing in their fifth pre-season affair compared to United’s second, made their extra sharpness count as they raced into a two-goal lead in the first half in Shanghai.
BVB’s extra sharpness proved decisive as the Bundesliga outfit inflicted a heavy maiden loss on the Portuguese in the International Champions Cup in Shanghai on Friday.
Gonzalo Castro stabbed home a scrappy opener and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a penalty after Antonio Valencia handled inside the box, before new boy Ousmane Dembele scored a fine solo effort to stretch the lead after the break.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who joined United from Dortmund earlier this month, scored his first goal for the club to reduce the arrears, but Castro’s classy long-range finish restored his side’s three-goal cushion.
United, who were only competing in their second friendly, lacked a sharpness in the final third that should improve as Mkhitaryan gets more game time, while Wayne Rooney and new arrival Zlatan Ibrahimovic are yet to play in pre-season.
