Jose Mourinho suffered his first defeat as Manchester United manager this afternoon as the Red Devils were thrashed 4-1 by Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai.
Against his former club, Henrikh Mkhitaryan opened his United account but goals from Gonzalo Castro (2), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ousmane Dembele saw Dortmund run out handsome winners.
It may only be a pre-season game in the International Champions Cup, but Mourinho may be concerned that his defence was so vulnerable to Dortmund’s dangerous attack.
According to The Guardian, Phil Jones will be one of Mourinho’s starting centre-backs for the beginning of the Premier League season, which will concern these fans.
Because a whole host of United supporters on Twitter lambasted Jones’s performance in China, with some desperate for him to be sold by the Special One this summer.
The fact it’s pre season doesn’t excuse the fact that Phil Jones and Memphis are useless

Hopefully this half of football will convince Jose to get rid of Phil Jones. #mufc

Phil Jones & Memphis have been awful so far. Mkhitaryan very quiet. Conditions play a part though, blistering.
