Manchester United lose their first game of their pre-season tour after a 2-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night
Manchester United lost their first game of their pre-season tour of United States on Wednesday night after a 2-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain.
The Red Devils had won all three of their previous pre-season friendlies stateside after wins against Club America, San Jose Earthquakes and Barcelona.
However, Luke Shaw’s own goal in the 25th minute was shortly followed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s strike nine minutes later to seal victory for the Ligue 1 champions.
The Red Devils couldn’t find a response against Laurent Blanc’s side despite the introduction of Morgan Schneiderlin at half-time after he had been dropped to make way for Bastian Schweinsteiger for the final friendly.
British record signing Angel Di Maria is reportedly edging closer to a switch to PSG after manager Louis van Gaal admitted he is unaware of the Argentina international’s whereabouts.
United are set to start their Premier League campaign with a clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on 8 August.
