Manchester United’s pre-season win over Manchester City in Houston was “a very good training session”, says United manager Jose Mourinho.
Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford scored as 67,401 at NRG Stadium watched United win 2-0 in the first Manchester derby outside England.
New signing Lukaku beat City keeper Ederson Moraes to Paul Pogba’s pass on 37 minutes. Then Rashford drove in Jesse Lingard’s pass two minutes later.
“I’m really pleased,” said Mourinho.
“I’m sure Pep [Guardiola] is the same. The most important thing was to give the players high quality training.”
