Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho
has claimed that “3-2 would have been
more natural than 4-1″ following Friday’s
defeat to Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai.
Gonzalo Castro scored twice as
Dortmund recorded a 4-1 victory over the
Red Devils, who were playing just their
second pre-season match in contrast to
Dortmund’s fifth.
Mourinho told the club’s official television
channel that he was ‘not surprised’ to see
his team lose, but has added that the
nature of the scoreline was not a fair
reflection of what occurred in China.
“I think 3-2 would have been more
natural than 4-1. But Dortmund showed
their quality and they showed that they
are in a more advanced stage of their
preparations,” Mourinho told reporters.
Next up for Man United is a clash with
Manchester City in Beijing on Monday.
